We’ve collaborated with Youth Frontiers to bring educators an interactive retreat focused on the critical role of educator-student relationships in academic achievement. This is not your average workshop. Combining music, small group discussions, and evidence-packed mini-lectures, educators revisit the neuroscience of stress and recommit to forging meaningful connections with every student. What if you looked forward to your next professional development day?

Key learning objectives:

  • Remind and reaffirm educators’ understanding of the central role of relationships and school connectedness in academic achievement
  • Explore the science of stress on the learning brain and its impact on executive function
  • Identify practical strategies for building relationships with all students and creating a culture of connection that is sustained through challenging behaviors
