About this event

		PJI Teachers Academy 2022 Session 2 image

The PJI Teachers Academy, a week-long intensive program is designed for educators by educators. This immersive cohort-based program supports teachers in reflecting on their lives and current practices and with an eye to deepening equity in their hearts, minds, and classrooms. Based on the latest neuroscience and teaching literature, participants will explore topics such as privilege, race, gender, LGBTQ, trauma, resilience, empathy, mindfulness, and missing histories while also building relationships and community with others. Connect back with your love for teaching and share your experience and expertise with others as you move beyond compliance to connection in your vocation and with your students. To learn more go to our PJI Academy website.

PJI Teachers Academy Session 1 will be hosted at one of our Valencia College Campuses. A specific location will be determined by November 1, 2021. Each day begins at 8:30am with a welcome coffee bar and continues until 4:00pm with a one-hour lunch break (lunch will be provided). Part of our PJI model is connecting through a shared purpose during learning sessions, coffee breaks, and lunch. We create authentic and supportive learning through our experience with mindfulness, music, art, and active learning strategies.

Completion Requirements:

  • Attendance at all daily sessions.
  • Completion of all reading and writing assignments.
  • Open-minded and respectful approach toward participants and activities.
  • In-depth self-reflection and application.
  • Upon completion of the Academy, return to home institution to lead at least three Professional Learning opportunities to share the PJI topics and takeaways.
