WHAT IS "THE STAY TRUE TO THE TEACHER IN YOU" SUMMIT?


The "Stay True to the Teacher in You" Virtual Summit is the official K-12 educator conference of Identity Talk Consulting. The "Stay True to the Teacher in You" mantra calls for K-12 educators to prioritize their personal and professional well being in order to be their most authentic selves within their school communities and beyond. By proactively taking this approach, educators can position ourselves to, not only have success and longevity in the education field, but to engage in the advocacy work necessary to transform educational outcomes for Black & Indigenous Students of Color.


WHAT WILL YOU LEARN?


Throughout the summit, participants will attend teacher-led workshop sessions that will cover the following core strands:


TEACHER WELLNESS & SELF CARE: Strategies & tools to help educators incorporate self-care into their daily practice.


CULTURALLY RESPONSIVE & ABAR PRACTICES: Equitable practices that will center the historical, cultural, and social experiences of BIPOC students, LGTBQIA+ students, and other marginalized student populations.


SOCIAL-EMOTIONAL LEARNING PRACTICES: Strategies that help students develop self-awareness and interpersonal skills so they can self-regulate their emotions and have healthy interactions with school community members.
