Wellness Wednesday

Here We Go Again:  Adjusting to the New School Year

 

Being an educator is hard, regardless of what role you play. Wellness Wednesday is a monthly series that allows educators the time to learn how to make wellness and self-care a priority throughout the school year. Each month will consist of a different Wellness topic that educators can use to improve their personal well-being and the mental health and well-being of their students. Connections will be made on how this affects the school’s behavior and culture and the overall social-emotional status of the school. Join us virtually live on the 3rd Wednesday of each month at 9:00 or contact Kayla Jones (kayla.jones@wkec.org) for information regarding the recorded session.
