We talk a lot about self care. Investing in yourself can come in many forms...beach reads, meditation, worldwide adventures…

Self care also means investing in your career, and time away from your regular routine can be the perfect opportunity to learn something new.

There are SO many opportunities to connect with your teaching tribe in the upcoming months!
