Bringing self and collective care into the classroom is a vital part of our work as educators.
Dr. Cortez shares that "Instructors, you have the power to make self and collective care a priority in your classes. Self care refers to taking care of yourself. Further, collective care is a form of caring for the community. However, self care IS NOT a selfish act. It is in itself caring for the community by engaging in practices that heal, recharge, refocus, etc. It is difficult to perform optimally when you have not shown care for yourself."
