This is a difficult time for so many in our community. You are not alone if you’re having to dig deep in order to bring strength and stability to your teaching. And undoubtedly, we will be facing many difficult conversations in our classrooms in the days, weeks, months, and years to come. 

At the next TEP Pedagogy Lunch, we will come together to support one another by discussing strategies for coping with “hot moments”. We will reflect on how our jobs as educators stretch us far beyond the content of our disciplines when we find ourselves facilitating difficult conversations about local and global events.
