Designed to connect with issues that are relevant to us, our students, and our profession, the WEA Academy’s book discussions provide an opportunity to learn, engage, and reenergize. Through reading pertinent new material, authentic conversation, and connecting with colleagues statewide, we gain fresh perspectives and discover new knowledge and strategies that can impact our daily work and personal well-being.
Discussion will be facilitated by Barb VanDoorn. Barb is a K-12 school counselor who leads book discussions for her district, the Wisconsin Teacher of the Year Council and three book clubs. Barb speaks out for educator mental health thought the state and is a voice for rural mental health support.
