“Knowledgeable, Passionate and Just Fun! That sums up Sara’s presentation to the AASA’s Inaugural Social and Emotional Learning Cohort. In a room of school superintendents and district administrators she had everyone up and moving, connecting with one another and themselves. It was a journey that created an opportunity for the cohort to experience how creative expression and movement allows for better understanding of ourselves and the students we serve.”

MOVE THIS WORLD SPECIAL PROGRAMMING
Each day Move This World works to help students and teachers navigate the complex and rapidly-changing challenges of our world. We can’t think of a time when those challenges are more complicated and fast-moving than they are right now as we navigate the challenges that COVID-19 is creating for every part of our day to day lives. We can’t dismiss or ignore the challenges we are currently facing, but we can take small moments to pause, find stillness, and recharge, so that we can face this uncertain time feeling a little more well.
That’s why we’ve launched Move This World Special Programming. Throughout school closures, we’ll be hosting live Move This World Broadcasts. We’ll take a few minutes to come together, reflect, smile and laugh. We hope you’ll join us.
