Sustainable Compassion for Educators

  • Alameda County Office of Education 313 West Winton Avenue Hayward, CA, 94544 United States (map)

We know that the best learning happens when students feel safe, seen and connected. But how do we as educators learn to foster safe, caring relationships with our students, our colleagues and ourselves?

Join us for a day-long workshop to explore methods for deepening our natural capacity for care and connection. Together we will explore the latest research on the science of care, and consider ways in which compassion-focused practices can help us realize more inclusive, sustainable education communities.
