 UNK- Dr. Paul Welter, writer and professor emeritus from the University of Nebraska at Kearney, will be the featured speaker at Teachers’ Time Out on Thursday, Sept. 11, at the Museum of Nebraska Art (MONA).

Dr. Welter’s presentation will focus on ways teachers can keep up in the fast-paced world of education while maintaining their health. Before Dr. Welter’s talk at 5:15 p.m., there will be a social hour from 4-5 p.m. and refreshments will be served.
“Educators are working faster than ever,” Dr. Welter said. “The workplace has become a race track but slowing down puts one at risk.” This program will explore the secret that provides moment-by-moment renewal.

 “I know that this is a presentation that every teacher will want to hear, and put to use in his or her classroom and life,” said KrisAnn Sullivan, Frank House director.

Dr. Welter has written six books, including “Learning from Children,” “Counseling and the Search for Meaning” and the award-winning “How to Help a Friend.”

Originally from Kansas, Dr. Welter currently works as a Life Transitions counselor at the Lighthouse Counseling Center in Kearney. He received his degrees from Kansas State University, Fuller Theological Seminary in Pasadena, Wichita State University and the University of South Dakota. His work includes service in the Army, teaching English in Kansas and serving as a school psychologist in South Dakota and Nebraska. He taught in the Department of Counseling and School Psychology at UNK.

The event is co-sponsored by the Frank House, Museum of Nebraska Art, the Children’s Museum, Trails and Rails, Great Platte River Road Archway, Kearney Area Community Foundation, Kearney Public Library, Merryman Performing Arts Center, Nebraska Public Power District and Rowe Sanctuary.

“Our partnership is delighted to bring to this opportunity for renewal and engagement to our area teachers,” Sullivan said.
