The “unprecedented times” of the COVID-19 pandemic might feel like a thing of the past for some, but not for educators. Educators continue to navigate the lingering effects on students who have been isolated and underserved, not to mention educators’ own pandemic experiences. What we need now is a space for reflection, healing, and reclaiming joy post-pandemic.

Join us for this informative, engaging session on navigating a post-pandemic world. We will learn how to spot common narratives that promote inequities in schools and work collectively to establish joyful, promising counter-narratives. Educators will leave this experience with tangible strategies they can bring back to their schools and classrooms. 

  • Learn about why narratives of “learning loss” leave our most marginalized students out of the conversation. 

  • Reflect on our collective experiences of COVID-19 and how the pandemic affected students. 

  • Seize this moment as a portal to a more equitable and joyful post-pandemic reality. 

 The pandemic affected us all; let’s work together to be intentional as we move forward as equity-focused educators! 


This event is open to individuals from school boards, state municipalities, school districts, or other governmental units legally responsible for operating a public school or schools, or from a federally funded technical assistance and dissemination center.
