Strengthened in the Storm

At our annual Engage! Conference last week, our keynote speaker, Dr. Karen Reivich, offered a powerful insight from nature: trees that survive a storm grow stronger.
 
Like the roots of those trees, we, too, get stressed and stretched at trying times in our daily lives. So do our students. Yet as Dr. Reivich reminded us all, as we build and teach resilience, those challenges and storms become vital opportunities for growth—for us and our students.
 
It can be hard sometimes to be optimistic in times of struggle, but doing so gives all of us the confidence and resolve to thrive.
