NEA-New Hampshire Would Like to Assist You in Nurturing Your Resilience
In her book, Onward: Cultivating Emotional Resilience in Educators, Elena Aguilar defines resilience as:
- A way of being that allows us to bounce back quickly from adversity, and stronger than before, so that we can fulfill our purpose in life.
- An adaptive, dynamic process that includes an individual’s interactions over time in a complex environment. Context plays a role; resilience is not simply a function of one’s individual behavior. Who we are and where we are impact our ability to cultivate resilience.
- Cultivated through engaging in specific habits and by fostering specific dispositions.
- What enables us to thrive, not just survive.
There are 720 hours in a 30-day month. Would you be willing to spend one of those each month with your educator colleagues exploring ways to nurture your personal resilience and the resilience of those you care about? NEA-New Hampshire is offering two gatherings in which members can explore ideas and strategies for nurturing their personal resilience.
Gatherings for New Educators. Beginning at 6:00 PM on November 8th and continuing on the second Tuesday of the month throughout the school year, new educators Juliana Lofgren and Maria Dastous will be leading Real Talk and Resilience for New Educators. These gatherings are for educators who are in their first five years of working in education. Click here to register for the gatherings.
Gathering for Experienced Educators. Beginning at 7:00 PM on November 10 and continuing on the second Thursday of the month throughout the school year, veteran educator and school counselor Maxine Mosley will be leading a resilience gathering. Click here to register for the gatherings.
Members who register for either of these resilience gatherings will receive a free copy of Elena’s book, Onward and the accompanying workbook through a generous grant from the National Education Association.
Gathering to Nurture Your Personal Resilience
The focus of the gathering will be exploring how the we can build community among educators during the pandemic and after.
All members are welcome to come explore strategies for nurturing their personal resilience and to support other educators on the second Tuesday of each month at 7PM on Zoom.
