In community with other educators, discuss the book, Onward: Cultivating Emotional Resilience in Educators by Elena Aguilar. Onward tackles the problem of educator stress and provides a practical framework for taking the burnout out of teaching. This actionable framework gives you concrete steps toward rediscovering yourself, your energy, and your passion for teaching. The book Onward is designed to be read one chapter each month for an entire year; this book study gets you started on this process. In this 7-week book study, participants will meet virtually four times. There are also optional reflective opportunities to engage deeper and more personally with the content and earn additional PDUs. There are TWO different sections of this book study, a morning and an evening option.
OEA Choice Trust will provide participants with books and workbooks. Participants receiving books must commit to participating in at least 75% of the live sessions and/or personal reflections.
