Bringing the Barakah!
ISLA hosts workshop to help educators deal with burnout
Burnout has definitely been the boogie monster educators have been fighting against for (at least) the past year. And despite school leaders wishing to mitigate it (while struggling against it themselves), it persists. But there’s definitely some best practices that can be leveraged.
Towards this end, ISLA hosted a workshop on January 31, 2022 to assist Islamic school educators in implementing barakah practices with productivity research (which by the way, overlap in major ways). Former Islamic school founding principal, Kathy Jamil led the workshop, walking participants through the resource booklet with curated and original resources.
The resources combine gems from Productive Muslim, including the Prophet’s Daily Routine & 18 Sources of Barakah, as well as templates teachers and leaders can use to avoid their “productivity pitfalls” and enhance their ability to accomplish what is most important every day.
Participants worked in breakout rooms to discuss how they could utilize the templates in the Resource Packet, incorporating their desired barakah practices into their schedules.
