The sessions are provided free of charge through CMSC and managed via SignUp Genius. To see the different times, dates, and languages for these 1-hour sessions simply follow this link to SignUp Genius and sign up to attend. You will be sent a reminder email a few days before with the link to join. There is no need to commit to a series of sessions; just attend when it works for you.
The peer support sessions are an invitation to connect and share deeply, without compromise-confidentiality is a guiding principle, as is respect for each other and allowing everyone to bring whatever they wish to share, or seek opinion, support from the group for. We share the joy of delivering the course as well as discussing the process and any issues that may come up. We support one another unconditionally.
The sessions have an informal format, loosely based on the Zoom sessions for teacher training, where each person has the opportunity at the beginning to share what they wish to bring to the group, we go around each person, and the facilitator makes a note so that everyone has a chance to have their questions answered by the group. This is the only role of the facilitator, there is no hierarchy, we come together as one community, to share and support. When the original facilitator cannot attend another regular attendee simply steps up to the role.
Please note, this peer support group is open to Trained Teachers only. If you are a Teacher-in-Training, you are welcome to join the online Zoom consultation sessions (which is a different group) to support your learning and development as a teacher and move toward trained teacher status.
