The “Buzz" from Thriving Students Collective

National School Psychology Week is almost here! Are you ready??? It’s November 6th-10th, 2023, and this year’s theme is “Let’s Grow Together.”

I love this theme.

For those of you who don’t know me yet, I’m Dr. Rebecca Branstetter, school psychologist and co-founder of Thriving Students Collective. Since 2011, I’ve dedicated my career to helping school psychologists grow both personally and professionally so they are engaged, joyful and in a vibrant and resilient community of other school psychologists. This joy and positivity radiates out to reach students, families, and school communities and help them grow their resilience too.

In our Thriving School Psychologist course and community, we call it “being the marigold.”

For those of you who haven’t heard the analogy, here’s a quick video from our Thrive Hive TV channel, “ABCs of Co-Thriving with Students” where I share the #1 protective factor for educator burnout (and why marigolds and walnuts can help us understand stress).

So for National School Psychology Week, I’ve curated three new resources for you and your students to “Be the Marigolds” for others!

1. Free Coloring Pages to Promote Student Growth and Resilience

Do you want some fun activities for National School Psychology Week to do with your students? Check out these coloring pages and shareable social media images to promote resilience!

These are great conversation starters about growth mindset, learning from mistakes, and surrounding yourself with positivity.

2. Free Thriving School Psychologist Book to Promote OUR Resilience

So often we think of the needs of our students and forget about the importance of attending to our own needs and our own resilience in stressful times. I wrote this book for school psychologists who want strategies to have better time management, lower stress, and more impact in their school communities–beyond testing. (And Chapter 6 is all about Finding Your Marigolds!)

No matter if you’re a first year intern or a seasoned veteran, you’ll learn practical tools for transforming your career into the one you’ve always imagined.
