Kirkridge Retreat and Study Center is offering three mini-retreats in support of teachers and the many others serving in that role during this pandemic. With great gratitude for your work in the world, we invite you to register for any one or all three.
Saturday, February 13, 2021, 11am-12:30pm ET/8am-9:30am PT
In association with Valentine’s Day, Yolanda Abel and Sue Small offer Teaching with Heart: Celebrating Self and (Re)Connecting with Wonder. How do we allow our hearts to lead the way as we juggle the demands of teaching and balance the rest of our lives? Join us as we reflect on our journeys and reaffirm our celebratory moments.
Most of us become teachers for reasons of the heart.
- We teach because we care deeply about our students and about some subject. But the demands of teaching and the conditions in some schools cause too many of us to lose heart as the years go by.
- Is it possible to take heart once more so that we can continue to do what good teachers always do– which is to give heart to our students?”
–Parker J. Palmer, The Courage to Teach
Yolanda and Sue each taught in public schools and are university professors. Dr. Abel has over 28 years working with educators and has participated in several Circle Of Trust© retreats. Dr. Small is also a former principal and is still teaching, learning, and mentoring faculty as well as facilitating mini circles of trust for People Embracing Equality and Love at a church in Baltimore.
