Courage To Teach 2016-17 Professional Renewal Series

Interested in earning up to four graduate credits for taking time to slow down and reflect on your work as an educator? Interested in doing this in a beautiful natural setting while enjoying home‐cooked meals?

TreeApplications are now being accepted for the 2016‐17 Courage to Teach retreat series at Bethel Horizons, near Governor Dodge State Park. This year‐long series of four sessions (Friday evening through Sunday afternoon) is based on the work of noted educator, writer, and activist, Parker J. Palmer. Educators experience extended time to explore “the heart of a teacher” and reconnect with their core values and the passion that brought them into teaching. Each retreat follows a seasonal theme, using the rich metaphors of nature, reflections on personal stories and classroom practice, poetry, and insights from various wisdom traditions. Dates for the retreats are: Nov. 11‐13, 2016; Jan. 13‐15; April 28‐30; June 23‐25 (all 2017).  Click here for more info.
