Unleashing the Power of Positivity in Challenging Times - Positive educators have a powerful impact on the students in their care. Teachers create a positive environment when they exhibit and model an optimistic attitude and outlook. As neuroscientist Richard Davidson explains in his book The Emotional Life of Your Brain, “Emotion works with cognition in an integrated and seamless way to enable us to navigate the world of relationships, work, and spiritual growth.” Join us as we explore ideas and resources to cultivate optimism, joy, and hope in the everyday lives of educators and students.

Using Literature to Promote Equity, Diversity, and Inclusion - Multicultural literature serves as a powerful tool for enabling students to gain a better understanding of both their own culture and the cultures of others. It builds a sense of belonging, forging connections between home and school environments and across cultures. Multicultural literature and its power to bring people closer together, regardless of their culture and ethnicity, improves the lives of both students and their families. Join us as we explore ideas, resources, and authentic literature that will help educators promote equity, diversity, and inclusion.
