Feel Well, Teach Well: Ways to Gain and Sustain Wellness In and Out of the Classroom
November 11, 2014, 3:00 p.m. ET
Teaching is a challenging job! The stressors of being in the classroom each day can catch up with us if we don’t develop the skills and strategies to take care of ourselves both in and out of school.
Following up on their recent ASCD Arias publication, Stress-Busting Strategies for Teachers: How do I manage the pressures of teaching?, coauthors M. Nora Mazzone and Barbara J. Miglionico will discuss ways that will help you feel calmer, focused, and productive in all aspects of your life, starting with school each day.
Do you wake up at night worrying about how you will manage all that is on your plate? Feel overwhelmed by the growing aspects of the job? Feel depleted and drained both emotionally and physically? Then it’s time to establish some new routines for yourself—ways to change your reactions, maintain a sense of well-being and self-efficacy, and apply those new skills and ideas to all aspects of your life.
Return to school after the weekend with a new outlook!
