I had the honor of presenting my passion at the AASSA 2018 Conference in Ecuador.
I have presented this twice now but the first time to an audience that didn't know me. Who I am, What I stand for and How I advocate in my environment. I am proud of how it went.
At the conference @MsEmily_Class (twitter) also presented on Creating a Healthy Mindset on Stress. She was inspired by the same wonderful TED Talk on the impact that the belief of stress has on us.
Both Emily and I created an environment where participants were able to understand the importance of the belief of stress and how a positive mindset impacts us greatly. I hope that all participants gained some understanding on how to live sustainable and thriving lives within and outside of education.
As a field, some educators won't last more than a year because the stress or demands of the profession becomes too much. My hope and aim is to provide a short session on understanding our ego's, finding our stress indicators and how to deal with these positively so we can thrive.
