Welcome into 2021 with another edition of curated, research-based, education resources to support student mental wellbeing (and yours too).

Our theme this week is connectedness, which we explore through three different lenses.

First, explore the power of making digital connections with other teachers and look at teachers as drivers of change. Next, learn to build positive relationships with students through tools like engaging in five positive interactions for every one negative one. Finally, the last resouce reminds us that it is okay not to be okay.

Don't forget that in addition to recieving these resources, every week we will randomly draw from subscribers for 3 months, offering prizes such as facemasks, the Mind Up Curriculum series, and $50 cash awards. For a limited time, we are giving an extra entry in the draw to anyone who successfully invites another educator to subscribe to our emails with their educational work email address: https://tinyurl.com/MylesAheadEducators.
