MONTHLY TEACHER APPRECIATION EVENTS!

YOU DESERVE A BREAK!

With the classroom gone and school schedules thrown out of whack, it’s clearer than ever that being an educator takes a lot more than standing in front of a classroom and rattling off facts and figures. As so many inspiring educators have proven this past year, it takes profound patience, persistence, compassion, and no small amount of creativity.

In the past few months, we’ve seen an art teacher instruct her students on how to use a banana as a canvas; we’ve seen a science teacher (turned mad scientist) transform his kitchen into a chemistry lab; and we’ve seen countless others go beyond the call of duty to be there for their students through these tough times. 

Meanwhile, school administrators have developed creative solutions to make the leap from in-person to online schooling as smooth as possible and parents are working hard to keep their kids up to speed (not to mention relearning algebra!). 

We know that you educators, administrators, and parents have put in countless hours to give your kids the best education they can get, even in the face of uncertainty. You have adapted to challenges no one could ever dream of. 

We are so inspired by all of your courage, creativity, and resilience. And we think you deserve a break!

We’d like to invite YOU to our monthly Teacher Appreciation Celebration!

IN HONOR OF OUR 20TH ANNIVERSARY!

In honor of Soul Shoppe’s 20th anniversary, we are inviting all educators, administrators, and parents to an evening of renewal, connection, appreciation, and love.

Even though we’re separated by our devices and spread across vast distances, our social and emotional lives matter now more than ever. But with all the responsibilities you’re juggling, it’s easy to overlook self care and it can be hard to create space to decompress. We want to invite you into that space with an evening of songs, inspiration, learning, and joy. 

We will begin with a short meditation and songs from inspiring artists before we Soul Shoppe facilitators share some of what they’ve learned in our work with Teachers and Principals during this unprecedented time. Finally we’ll wrap up with a practice that you can implement tomorrow to make your classroom (or living room) a more compassionate, peaceful place.

We’re guessing you’re feeling pretty Zoomed out. 

Whether you’re a teacher, school administrator, or simply working from home, none of us are used to staring at a screen for 6+ hours. And even though you might be talking to people online all day, it’s difficult to create a meaningful connection across a digital screen. Too often that screen can feel more like a barrier than a bridge, but we want to help change that.

This event is designed to celebrate you, and to help you bridge that virtual gap so you can connect with your students and your colleagues in an impactful and heartfelt way. We invite you to bring all your overwhelm, all your anxieties and frustrations. Bring your full balloons (we will teach you all about them) and we’ll see if we can’t help you release some of that pent up pressure.

This isn’t another training or some lecture you have to struggle to keep your eyes open for (though if you do drift off, that’s fine too!). Feel free to invite your family, bring a snack, light a candle, and cozy up on your couch. This evening is all about creating space for you to let go of your everyday stresses and for us to express our deep gratitude.

Stay tuned as we announce our special guests on Facebook & Instagram over the next couple of weeks!
