Bitterroot College Offers Courage to Teach Workshop

February 11, 2014

MISSOULA – Chris Love and the Center for Courage & Renewal will deliver a Courage to Teach workshop from 9:30 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. Saturday, March 22, at the Bitterroot College University of Montana, located at 274 Old Corvallis Road in Hamilton.

The workshop costs $85, which includes lunch and materials, and will take place in the Bitterroot College Conference Room. All P-20 teachers are welcome to attend and K-12 teachers are eligible for six continuing education units upon completion of the workshop.  

Courage to Teach focuses neither on technique, nor directly on school reform, but rather on renewing the inner lives of professionals in education. Participants will experience a thoughtful pace within a safe space among peers; engage in individual reflection and conversations that invite integrity authenticity and wholeness; share experiences from their own teaching journey; and explore how to listen without fixing, advising or correcting.

CTT was developed by Parker Palmer, founder and senior partner of the Center for Courage & Renewal. He is a world-renowned writer, speaker and activist who focuses on issues in education, community, leadership, spirituality and social change.

Love is a Courage and Renewal facilitator trained by Palmer. She offers leadership retreats for educators, faith leaders and medical professionals. She also is a facilitator for Humanities Montana Reflect and an adjunct faculty member at Bitterroot College UM. 

Participants can register for the workshop by by calling 406-375-0100 or online at
