For once you don’t have to organize anything, just show up in comfortable clothes, be ready to learn, take care of yourself, and network. At this learning retreat we will address managing work and relationships, answer the questions important to you, share techniques to care for yourself during your busy workday, and provide networking time with your colleagues at other schools. Participants will leave with specific strategies to be implemented immediately, techniques for self-care, and a new network/friends.
