FARMINGTON HILLS, Mich. – June 9, 2021


Gale, a Cengage company, will host the Educators’ Virtual Prom: It’s time to Celebrate You!, a virtual event where Solution Tree author, Tina H. Boogren, will share tips from her Gale eBooks: Professional Learning title, 180 Days of Self-Care for Busy Educators, to help K-12 educators lead a happy, fulfilled life inside and outside the classroom.


It’s no secret that educators’ jobs have become tougher than ever. According to a recent EdWeek Research Center survey, 84% of teachers said that teaching is more stressful than it was before the pandemic. With longer work hours, struggles to engage students remotely and repeated pivots from hybrid to remote to in-person instruction, this school year has been a stressful whirlwind for educators, and their mental well-being needs some TLC. And there’s no better way to close out a tough school than with a party that celebrates all their hard work, along with some self-care tips!

As a gift for attending, all participants will receive access to the first chapter of Tina’s book, 180 Days of Self-Care for Busy Educators as well as an Educator Self-Care Party Planner, with tips for hosting a similar event(s) with teammates. Additionally, 100 lucky attendees will win a complete hard copy of Tina’s book!
