2021 Board Elections Invitation from Dra. Reyna Anaya
Dear Colegas, 

I hope this message finds you and your familia in good health. We recognize this past year has changed each of our lives in many ways, and in those changes we honor all the ways you have persevered in advancing the educational success of our Latinx students. We miss our comunidad, and hope you have found support and rejuvenation in the virtual spaces we’ve created together.  

With that said, we are excited to begin the 2021 CoCEAL election process. This year the positions of CoCEAL Secretary and President Elect are up for re-election. I invite each of you to actively engage in this process by running for a CoCEAL Executive Leadership position or nominating a rising colega(s) into one of these roles! Culturally, it is sometimes difficult to see ourselves in these leadership positions and at times imposter syndrome keeps us from believing we have the capacity to serve in these roles. Each of you have the capacity and skills to serve as a leader in this organization! If you have any questions, or need someone to talk with about serving in either of these roles, please know I am here to support and answer any questions you may have as you are considering these leadership opportunities. I hope to receive your 2020-2021 CoCEAL Executive Team Nomination Form today!

GRACIAS, for the opportunity to serve you over the last three years. It was an honor to work alongside you.

Dra. Reyna Anaya
Past-President, CoCEAL

Watch the Keynote recording of a heat-to-heart talk (plática) with Grace Alvarez Sesma.
In Curanderismo, a heart-to-heart talk (plática) is the place where one’s heart is safe to have a compassionate and open conversation. Where we are in circle with friends, colleagues, and family. We bring back the saying "Estás en confianza”. In this virtual circle, we will share insights, ideas, worries, and remembrances of customs set aside as a result of colonialism, the demands of academia, and the dominant narrative.

How do we, educators, counselors, and leaders, strengthen our own resiliency? As detribalized Indigenous People what do we remember or need to learn about our culture and customs so that we better serve students?

La cultura cura (culture heals) is a phrase often used today as a way of acknowledging that the cultural and spiritual practices of our ancestors that we once turned away, are now recognized as having a profound positive effect on our mental health and wellness. Our CoCEAL circle will conclude with a closing ceremony.
Special thanks to Mary Sauceda and Andrea Rascon for taking over
