Concordia University Ann Arbor
North Building Library
3475 Plymouth Road
Ann Arbor, MI 48105
8:00 am to 2:00 pm.
Doors open at 8 am, the morning session will run from 9 am to 11:30 am. Lunch will be served from 11:30 am to 12:30 pm, the afternoon session will run from 12:30 pm to 2:00 pm.
Every school year the world presents us with new challenges, both behavioral and emotional. Meeting these challenges can be burdensome as we strive to teach academics and faith, yet we know this is part of the work God sets before us. We will spend the day in learning and discussion examining unique tools for creating classroom, school, and personal environments that nurture emotional strength. We cannot fix the world’s problems, we cannot prevent them from creeping into our classrooms and our lives, yet we know God’s power is at work within us. This empowers us to be mentally healthy to inspire and be a more effective teacher for students and their families. Set aside your prep work and join us for a day of building resilience for challenging times.
