Building Educator Capacity for Inclusive Practice

How Are You?

“Creating an
environment
of wellness starts
with feeling safe,
sharing vulnerability and
braving authentic
connection”

– Brandi Heather

Description of Play Talk

This workshop will open the conversation about how teachers and staff are building their own physical, cognitive and social/emotional capacity for wellness in a diverse and ever-changing school climate. Together we will build connection and understanding for the multiple roles that teachers are fulfilling and grow resiliency within these dynamic practices through the provision of practical tools. Participants leave with resources for self-care in adapting, changing, and learning in inclusive, diverse climates.

Come explore how we can we grow our capacity for change, diversity, and health equity by including play in our teaching environments. Remodel our teaching philosophy for self-care and inclusive practice. Discover that when we recognize and value our own diverse needs, knowledge, and experience that we are more open to understanding the unique needs of others.
