About the event
The Anxiety Antidote empowers teachers with tools and strategies to provide a positive approach to managing student well being.

It all starts with you!
In this session you will take a collective breath and learn the powerful tools and strategies that are proven to reduce stress, anxiety and burnout in teachers.
