Resilient Schools in Action


  • Gaylord National 165 Waterfront Street National Harbor, MD 20745 USA (map)

Teaching, learning, and leading are complicated enough as they are. Add childhood trauma, toxic stress, incredible demands, high expectations, public scrutiny, funding gaps . . . well, you know our reality as educators. How can we best lead in our current climate? How can we foster resilience in staff, students, and ourselves? Join Kristin Souers and Pete Hall (authors of Fostering Resilient Learners and Relationship, Responsibility, and Regulation) as they explore the impact of stressors on the brain, peel back the veneer of our mindsets, and share ways to create a Culture of Safety: a learning environment that is safe, predictable, and consistent. With humor, straight talk, and useful strategies, the opening general session is sure to leave you inspired, energized, and equipped to tackle the challenges before you.
