Resilience in Education Workshop
The Resilience in Education Workshop is interactive and engaged, giving teachers the time to experience the tools they will teach.
Building resilience in schools is crucial to ensuring a happy and engaging experience for teachers, students, parents, and school administrators. Recent years have been particularly challenging for schools to provide the support and network students need to thrive. According to a recent Gallup poll, teachers are experiencing burnout at an unprecedented rate. Students are struggling to return to pre-pandemic learning levels, parents are challenged to support their children, and school administrators are left trying to balance an often unmanageable workload.
The Resilience in Education Workshop is interactive and engaged, giving teachers the time to experience the tools they will teach. Participants will be given tools to teach students awareness and calm, learn a mental model for assessing their own resilience and calm and clarify their own goals for their students' experiences of personal serenity for optimal openness and learning. Teachers will engage in group discussions and individual reflection exercises as they explore tools for feeling resilient and calm.

WHAT CLIENTS ARE SAYING
“Lorca traces the contours of our lives and helps us recognize the beauty of the deep canyons, the power of how to run fleet footed with the fears for a moment, and then the way to take the strength from running and offer it to our communities as a gift. Our leadership is needed, now more than ever, and Lorca floats the tools we need to to surface so that our work becomes effortless.”

“Lorca is remarkable in her ability to work with educators to create a dynamic where they feel safe working with each other and within themselves. Because teachers can often give themselves to the point where they leave their profession, she trained our staffs in understanding how caring for themselves is caring for their careers.”
