About this event

  • 3 hours

When teachers are well-prepared, strategically mentored, and feel a sense of belonging, the chances that they will thrive in a new working environment are high. This virtual workshop will explore ways to redesign the onboarding process that emphasize care and belonging. Through a series of small-group discussions and activities, participants will walk away with practical tips and strategies to reinvigorate ways new faculty and staff members enter a school’s community.

  • Identify the pivotal role relationships, belonging, and purpose serve for thriving school cultures
  • Examine a relational program for supporting new faculty and staff as a vital component of school culture
  • Reflect on the connection between one's experience, identity, and purpose for education

Participants will walk away with a digital toolkit full of templates and activity examples.


This workshop is open to all educators, particularly those connected to the recruitment, hiring, and onboarding and mentoring of teachers, administrators, and staff.
