Charlotte N.C. (April 1, 2020) — To support educators, and the people who manage them, as they navigate these challenging times, Aperture Education is hosting a free upcoming webinar highlighting the importance of teacher resiliency. “Promoting Teacher Resilience,” which will be led by SEL thought leader and Aperture’s vice president of research and development Paul LeBuffe, will help educators better understand resiliency and ways to promote it both with themselves and their colleagues. The webinar will take place on Friday, April 3, 2020 at 3 p.m. ET and all attendees will receive a certificate of attendance.

“Resiliency is critical for educators, now more so than ever as they move to teaching remotely while managing their own households and unique situations,” said LeBuffe. “This webinar will provide timely and impactful information to help educators understand how resiliency is critical to their well-being and how they can continue to promote and strengthen their resiliency so they, in turn, can continue to best meet the needs of their students.”     

During the webinar, LeBuffe will specifically discuss a blend of theory and practice designed to help educators better understand the science behind resiliency; ways to promote teacher resilience; and simple techniques to promote personal resilience and well-being.

Throughout his career, LeBuffe has focused on strength-based approaches to promoting social and emotional competence and resilience in children, youth, and the adults who care for them. He is the co-author of the Devereux Student Strengths Assessment (DESSA) as well as the author of several strength-based assessments for children which have been adopted by more than 5,000 school districts, out-of-school-time organizations, and other programs.
