In their third year of pandemic teaching, teachers continue to sound the alarm about the levels of exhaustion and overwhelm they face each day as front-line caregivers. They are told to practice “self-care” to cope with the stress; however, Chelsea Prax of the American Federation of Teachers reminds us, “You cannot ‘individual behavior’ your way out of structural problems.” Our education system has been profoundly impacted by the COVID-19 pandemic, and as we plan for the future, we must reconsider our approach to retaining and supporting our school-based staff.

I took part in The disproportionate impact of COVID 19, and how to provide “real” support for black/brown children and families and I just want to say this was an amazing webinar. I hope we can look forward to further conversation on this topic.
Thank you so much for making events like this! I really enjoyed and learned so much teaching strategies to implement STEM in the classroom.
The HR Network was an excellent opportunity to network and learn the best practices from other HR professionals within Head Start programs. You will be amazed by the level of talent and experience of the participants.
The Summer Camp training was powerful and inspiring! Each presenter was very engaging, it’s hard to even pick a favorite session!
The Leadership Challenge training was very relevant to my work as a Head Start leader! Great facilitation; stayed with the program yet allowed time for individual and small group reflections.
