Fine-tune Your Resolutions to Ring in the New Year

4:00 pm CDT


In this humor-filled and research-based presentation, Peggy Rakas returns to guide us through best practices for music teachers to increase optimism levels and prioritize self-care. It turns out that a little fine-tuning of our goals and resolutions can have a major effect on our positivity levels. Based on positive psychology, this workshop will examine proven ways to improve happiness levels so teachers and students can be more optimistic, grateful, energetic, motivated, creative, and effective in the classroom. Attendees will receive suggestions for small, sustainable happiness boosters and will go home with engaging ideas, clear goals, practical exercises, and tiny but powerful habits that will motivate all.
