Designed to help you succeed in this new reality.
New content will be uploaded every Saturday.

The Canadian Rocky Mountain Festival has decided not to have a festival this year. Instead of holding our annual Banff Festival, we will be working with the website Teach Band 101 to present a new section entitled One Week at a Time.

This project will present new information weekly which will help teachers prepare for the next week of teaching. Although we cannot offer you our exciting festival experience, our hope is that this resource will help make your 2021 teaching experience more successful and rewarding. Enjoy!

Mental Health

This meditation is designed to help you understand your reaction to stress, also known as the ‘fight or flight’ response. This was made with teachers in mind, to help them become less reactive in moments of stress.
