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?

If you are looking for all of the above things in professional learning then The Teacher Self-Care Conference is for you. We are looking for teachers and/or mental health professionals who can "pour" into teachers under the theme, "Practicing the radical art of teacher self-care".

Deadline to submit a proposal will be August 31st, 2018
Timeline for Decisions: 
October 1,  2018 - Emails sent out to approved workshops.
