Course Begins: Registration is currently closed. 
*We work with your schedule! Once enrolled, you have the flexibility to start on or after March 9th.

“Studies indicate that approximately 60-70% of teachers show stress symptoms, and about 30% of them have burnout symptoms.”

Teaching is a rewarding, yet often a stressful experience.  As an educator, have you experienced these teaching-related stressors?  

  • Conflicts with administration.
  • Dealing with negative colleagues.
  • Classroom management challenges.
  • Demoralizing management practices.
  • Inadequate salaries or reimbursement.
  • Absentee and/or Confrontational parents.
  • Unmotivated and/or disruptive student behavior.
  • Ill-informed operational changes within the school.
  • Inadequate Administrative communication and leadership.
  • Inadequate teacher training and insufficient school equipment.
  • Unreasonable time and workload demands (lesson planning, grading, duties).
  • Administrative insensitivity: insufficient support in addressing student misconduct.

“Negative consequences of teacher stress have been found on teacher mental health, low work productivity and have resulted in what some have described as a national epidemic of teacher departures.”

Are you experiencing some of the negative effects of teacher stress?  

  • Less job satisfaction
  • Low work productivity.
  • Decreasing work-life balance.
  • Lowered moral and motivation.
  • Low self-esteem and confidence.
  • Feeling overwhelmed or burnt-out. 
  • Reduced communication and cooperation.
  • Absent more often from work (absenteeism).
  • Loss of composure with students and/or parents.
  • Difficulty relaxing, irritable and/or over-reactive.
  • Adverse physiological changes (such as increased heart rate).

“When compared with other professions, teachers report one of the highest levels of occupational stress.”

Have you found yourself emotionally exhausted and thought one or two of the following?   

  • “I shouldn’t have to work so hard.”
  • “Students should always be respectful.”
  • “Students say things that make me feel bad.”
  • “I must be in total control of my class at all times.”
  • “I find it too difficult to balance my work and home demands.”
  • “I feel like a failure when I haven’t “gotten through” to a class.”
  • “I must reach every child and if I don’t it means I’m a bad teacher.”
  • “Events in my classroom should always go exactly the way I want them to.”
  • “I can’t stand it when I put all my energy in a student or class and get no results.”
  • “I can’t stand it when I am not consulted about a decision, which affects my teaching.”
  • “One thing I find totally bad is the lack of communication between teachers and administration.”
  • “Without good teacher-administrator communication and support, schools are the terrible places to work.”
  • “I must be fully prepared when the Principal arrives for an observation, and it would be terrible if I’m not.” 

If you find yourself emotionally exhausted and the above thoughts sound familiar, then this course is for you!
