Presented By: Christina Woods

We all want to create the best learning environment for all students.

Join us for an inspiring discussion with Christina Woods where she will explore educator practices that create spaces that affirm, encourage, and challenge students.

In this workshop, we will:

  • Connect culturally responsive pedagogies to social emotional learning; examining why belonging influences achievement
  • Reflect on “teacher culture” and educator self-management– tools for responding to adult needs in the classroom
  • Explore data-driven strategies to build and maintain relationship–efficient systems that partner practice with simple reflection
  • Embed grounding rituals in daily or weekly classroom practices–reflective writing, daily dedications, and community wisdom to name a few!
