July 27 – Day of Learning & Leader Kick-Off

July 27 @ 8:30 am - 3:30 pm

Thursday, July 27 (8:00am – 3:30pm) – IN PERSON ONLY – NOT FOR LICENSURE RENEWAL CREDIT!

Habits To Health: Owning Our Stress with Barb Ranck
In this session, we will go beyond reacting to and managing stress; it gets to recognizing patterns where our greatest strengths create our stress, disrupting patterns that don’t get us the outcomes we want, and taking intentional, compassionate ownership to build the important, consistent, healthy habits that keep us healthy, regardless of circumstances. This session will be a mix of teaching, activities, and small group discussions, offering time to connect with peers and with others to gain new perspectives and best practices. Individuals will leave with a “30 Day Healthy-Habit Plan” for them to complete and to check in with a peer who will help hold them accountable.

Legal Primer and Q&A with Nathan Arnold, Esq.
During this session, we will learn more about legislation passed earlier this year and how it might impact you and your classroom. Additionally, participants will enjoy the opportunity to ask questions of Nathan and other office staff.

Leader Kick-off with Guest PEI Members
Throughout the day we will hear from district leaders – those who recognize the PEI value proposition and share it with others. We will hear from leaders who have worked to grow membership, and we will learn “why” they feel compelled to share the benefits of PEI and “how” they have approached membership growth.
