Saturday Morning Coffee Chat for Special Education Teachers

Online Event
Past Event

The teachers from the East Valley CEC Chapter invite you to a free zoom coffee chat with special education teachers around the state as we experience a school year like never before!


Group Discussion


This year has been challenging in so many ways and teachers have risen up to the challenge; however, many teachers do not practice ongoing self-care! Teachers, especially special education teachers, are tired, stressed, and frustrated. We've never been afraid of hard work, but our time in education is very different. During this workshop we will discuss everyday activities teachers can do for themselves and students to practice self-care. Many of these practices can take a few minutes but decrease overall daily stress.


Michelle Obama affirmed, "We need to do a better job of putting ourselves at the top of our own 'to do' lists." So, join us to put yourself on your own 'to do" list!
