On Monday, January 11th, 1N5 provided a RECHARGE + RECONNECT training session for the teachers at the School of Creative and Performing Arts. Over 80 educators and staff attended the session, which focused on compassion fatigue and prioritizing self-care. Self-care is more important than ever, especially for educators who give so much of themselves to their students.
Participants had the opportunity to practice self-care activities like gratitude, breathing, and the importance of acknowledging stressors and feelings. They also brainstormed ways the school could come together as a community in this time of uncertainty. Principal Michael Owens thanked 1N5 by saying, “Thank you for contributing in such a meaningful way to our professional development.”
