*Resilience is a key factor in student success. However, if we do not first
prioritize our own resilience, it is impossible to foster it in our
students. In this retreat, regional educators will share with you practical
techniques for developing resilience as well as strategies for translating
those experiences into your teaching practice. Together, these strategies
can help you systematically maximize favorable conditions for teaching and
learning in your classroom.
