Professional learning continues to be a high priority for Region 6. We welcome your ideas and suggestions in order to provide high quality and relevant opportunities for our members. For over two years, we have offered professional learning events virtually due to the ongoing pandemic and at no cost to members and non-members thanks to our partners. For the 2022-23 school year, we are planning both virtual and in-person events to meet the current needs of our members. If you would like to be involved in planning professional development in Region 6, contact our Vice President of Staff Development, ">Lorianne Ventura.

Region 6 Presents a Two-Part Workshop

The Teaching Well: Wellness, Somatic/Mindfulness Practices, Racial Trauma in the Context of Healing.

“Balance your nervous system with multiple somatic/mindful practices woven throughout an engaging session mapping our stress cycles again the Human Function Curve. Learn to read your unique body cues, behavior cues, and communication cues such that you can engage in connected communication with colleagues and mindfully shift yourself/your nervous system back into homeostasis in the work environment. Additionally, you will consider the ways in which implicit bias is perpetuated at higher rates by individuals who are stressed and burned out…” At The Teaching Well, they believe that to be truly anti-racist, one must also center wellness.
