New London Public Schools Teacher Self-care Series

Series builds off of last year’s Trauma Trainings for Educators that included an introduction to understanding Compassion Fatigue. This series will utilize reflective practices, videos, exercises, and collegial support to help teachers manage the challenges of this work while holding in mind each educator’s unique gifts and wisdom. The first session was titled "Reconnecting with Your Teacher’s Wisdom / Honoring Your Battle Wounds" and allowed teachers to spend time with colleagues, reconnect with their reasons for becoming an educator, reflect upon their experiences in the classroom, and leave the session with an action plan for self-care.
