Happy teachers teach better. It’s that simple. If you want to teach better, you must practice self-care. As a teacher, you have what is arguably one of the most stressful professions. Left alone, a classroom of students is inherently unstable. As the teacher, you are expected to be a constant source of stability. This is virtually impossible if you don’t take care of yourself. In my Self-Care for Educators course, you will learn about the four primary domains of personal development that require self-care. Participants will learn how applying principles of mindfulness to their teaching can create a happier classroom. Additionally, participants will learn about the science of habit creation and how to create healthy lifelong habits.

Topics to be Covered:

  • How taking care of yourself physically, emotionally, intellectually, and spiritually can benefit your teaching

  • How to create habits that last

  • How to apply basic mindful awareness skills to your whole day

  • Understanding your negative emotions & the power of positivity

  • The power of affirmations, intention setting, and gratitude
