Educator Emotional Resilience CoP 2023-2024

September 19, 2023

Educator Emotional Resilience

This TREC Community of Practice is focused on educator emotional resiliency and uses the book Onward, by Elena Aguilar.  Participants read a chapter each month and participate in a virtual monthly meeting during which we discuss the chapter and engage in emotional resilience activities.

This CoP is free to attend thanks to a generous grant from the Helios Education Foundation.  Each participant will also receive the book Onward by Elena Aguilar.

Monthly attendance is encouraged but not required.  You do not need to attend previous months’ meetings to join the discussion centered on resilience.

This TREC CoP is led by TREC Teacher Leaders Anamika Sood (TUSD), Jillian Powers (Flowing Wells), Shay Humphreys (Amphi), Kate Kelsey (Independent), Cerelo Flores (Baboquivari), Rene Acereto (TUSD), Jessica Leonard (Marana), and Sheila Callahan (Marana)
