Join us for a conversation on teacher self-care

We’re hosting our first #yfchat Twitter chat for the school year

By practicing self-care throughout the year, teachers can foster a safe space for learning not just for their students, but their own physical, mental and emotional health. Establishing a set of practices at the beginning of the school year is critical for success.

We invite you to join our team for a Twitter Chat about teacher self-care. We’ll discuss what self-care looks like for teachers in the classroom, easy tools to practice self-care during the day, and creating a network for collective health and wellness.

Date: Monday, September 12, 8pm — 9pm EST
Moderator: @yogafoster featuring Kelli Love
Hashtag: #yfchat
