The past year has been filled with uncertainty, new stressors, and many challenges for students, education personnel, and families. The intersection of COVID, the social injustice movement, the insurrection, and other tragedies has resulted in the need to strengthen existing strategies and create new ones as we help students cope, increase learning potential, and serve as a resource for families. This presentation will discuss ideas to accomplish these goals. We have also been impacted by the numerous events of the past year. Our own self-care is important as we continue to help others and a new framework for this essential action will be shared.
