Vulnerability as Self-Care
Presented by: Laila Nur,
Not much can prepare us for the emotional strength and investment that is required to be an educator. We give so much. The emotional toll of teaching can cause us to suppress “negative” emotions as a defense mechanism, but this does more harm than good. This session will work to create a safe space for us to process, reframe, and learn how to share those emotions as an act of vulnerability for our own self-care.

Webinar description: For me teaching has been a journey encountering things I knew would happen and then at times, things that were unknown. Knowns may be our students, our goals, or our purpose in teaching. Unknowns might include changes in curriculum and assessment, life experiences, and global events such as we are experiencing now. All these happenings shape us as individuals, as a learning community, and as teachers of mathematics. Join me in exploring this journey and ways NCTM can connect, support, and grow our mathematics teaching and learning community in the knowns and in the unknowns.
