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 12-month book study will meet once a month starting in June and ending in May 2024. There are also optional reflective opportunities to engage deeper and more personally with the content and earn additional PDUs each month.
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.
Dates and Times: June 27, 2023 - May 2024. Live sessions (12) once a month on Tuesdays from 5:00-6:00 p.m.
Cost: Members: $0, free as a benefit of membership; Non-members: $300.
