Show Notes

Let’s be candid—our educators are feeling “March tired” already, well before the end of the school year. In this second year of personal and professional upheaval due to the effects of the pandemic, educator attrition rate is at an all-time high, threatening the infrastructure of our school system and the wellbeing of our students and school communities. Our educators are leaders in the community and often help set the positive tone about aiming high and staying positive. But how can one stay mentally motivated to persevere through the lows to finish the school year strong? 

Listen to this edWeb podcast to hear from Paralympic medalist Deja Young as she shares how she’s trained herself to embrace the athlete mindset to work through her personal and professional highs and lows throughout her track and field career. Deja has been quite candid in dealing with her own mental health challenges, and she discusses those practices and techniques she has embraced to help motivate herself and work towards her goals. Her journey parallels what many of our teachers are facing in today’s classrooms, so come hear Deja’s inspiring presentation in this new year. 

This edWeb podcast is of interest to K-12 and higher education teachers, librarians, counselors, and school and district leaders.
