TREC June Summit 2021: Wellness in the Workplace Panel

Join panelists as they share information and strategies for both yours and your students’ well-being. These professionals, including educators, will discuss vocational wellness, suicide/depression, COVID related anxiety , and developing strategies for self-care. Tim Grivois will lead this diverse group of panelist. The panelists will each share at least one strategy that you can use this summer or as you begin preparing for the 2021-2022 school year.

Tim Grivois, Ed.D., founded TGS Educational Consulting in March of 2020 because he wanted to spend his days doing what he loves: Learning as much as he can and helping others learn and grow (children and marginalized first and most of all).

Prior to TGS Educational Consulting, Tim was the Director of Professional Learning at CITY Center for Collaborative Learning. Before that, he served as elementary school principal in Tucson Unified School District in Arizona, and assistant principal in District 63 in Niles, Illinois. The heart of his career has been teaching third and fourth grade.

Tim earned his Masters in Elementary Education and Doctorate in Educational Leadership from Loyola University Chicago. He currently lives in Tucson, Arizona. When Tim is not keeping busy helping his clients increase the good they do (and to do it justly and equitably), you can find him reading, playing with his three kids, or zoning out to Netflix. He is also thinking about getting a chicken coop and a really big dog.
