The Chameleon
**Note:  This session has been rescheduled for Wednesday, June 3 at 3:30. 

Imagine a world where everything you know, changes. Suddenly you no longer go to work, the streets are empty, it seems everyone is speaking a different language, some are wearing masks, there is no one there. There are no answers to the questions. It is confusion
Recently, we all experienced COVID-19 and our world was turned upside down. It made us alter our daily routines, how we teach, and of course still adjust our home to the new norm.

These same feelings, these same questions, this same unknown day to day confusion can be a daily test for some of our students. Without the basic education or understanding of emotions, self-regulation or self-advocacy, our students don't always have all the skills necessary to maneuver through life. Some as simple as language barriers, home life, domestic, or simply a need to regulate.

How can we as educators work together to help our students' well bieng? Success or failure should not be determined by our resources or lack thereof.
Come join me to discuss Emotional Wellness for Students and Teachers alike. I would love active participation and Q&A!

Lend me your eyes, I'll change what you see.

Cybersecurity Basics
Cyber crime is estimated to cost upwards of $6 trillion by 2021. This makes hacking a more profitable industry than the global illegal drug trade. But how? Well, that same report states that more than 90% of successful attacks are the result of a break in the weakest link in any organization: US! The users. Bad passwords, password re-use, falling victim to phishing and other scams, etc. We will go into detail on current trends, what to watch for, how to protect yourself, and I'll even show you some tools to help you along the way.
