Workshop Conference Call for Proposals

"Radical self-care is being you at all times."- Valencia D. Clay

What if we totally switched up how we participate in conferences in the world of education? What if you could go to a place with other educators and learn the radical art of self-care? What if you could hear from other educators and industry professionals not only how to address the needs of teachers, but also the practical ways you can take place? What if you could take what you know about self-care/mental health and participate in a weekend that feeds the soul?

During our Annual Conference, we will have room in where there will be 15-minute TED-Style Talks given around self-care and we want YOU to apply. Stretched out over two days, these talks are meant to make you laugh, cry, and solidify what you need to practice true self-care while teaching.
