Sylvania Dean of Instruction and SY TLC 2019-2020 Focus Plan

Building a community of care is the way we manifest our commitment to equitable student success. By purposefully building connections, offering support, and sharing resources, we help to strengthen our relationships with one another and our students. These relationships are a vehicle for being holistic and culturally-responsive educators, both to our students and to one another.

Mindful Mondays (every Monday!)

Mindful Mondays are just one of the many self-care practices available. Jill Tuleya (Exercise Science instructor) has been sharing mindfulness practices every Monday from 12-12:50pm. For those that can’t attend the live event, check out previous weeks’ recordings.

For more information, contact Samm Erickson, Linda Fergusson-Kolmes, or Jill Tuleya.
