Fighting Your Inner Voice with Christine Ravesi-Weinstein

UNPACKING stories of strength, struggle, and triumph

Regardless of why, we have all struggled to fight an inner voice laden with self doubt and criticism. In this session, participants will hear the unique story of one educator’s fight against her inner voice. Additionally, participants will connect with others regarding periods of personal negativity and the strategies they’ve used to fight back and gain confidence. This session will help others begin to unpack the depths and layers of self-doubt we experience in an effort to further understand the stories of our students. The most impactful teaching occurs when we make connections with our students. These connections happen when we understand shared experience and emotion. Humanizing the educational experience for students through our own authenticity will help students be more successful in the classroom.
