Review Dr. Martin Seligman’s model of PERMA: positive emotion, engagement, relationships, meaning, and accomplishment. Practice strategies and create goals to increase our own well-being, as well as that of your students. Leave feeling energized and ready to become a change agent in your classroom and school.
