Teaching with Emotional Intelligence: PD for the People Who Work in Education
Teaching is not what it used to be. Life has become too complicated, too stressful and too quick to change. Traditional ways of teaching have given way to lots of technology, high rate of depression and anxiety among teachers and students, miscommunication, relationship breakdowns, information overload and feelings of being trapped. Teaching is highly effected by this stressful lifestyle and the results are reflected by students’ academic and emotional state.
Most of the focus seems to be on supporting students. Governments invest in them without supporting the most important agents of education and identity – parents and teachers. Professional development for teachers focuses on Math or English, not on the teachers.
I believe that teachers are important in the life of their students and that investing in their emotional intelligence will increase their happiness and therefore their ability to teach and to be role models.
In an interactive full day professional development for teachers, participants get the keys to leading a happy life and the importance of emotional intelligence in their classrooms and their students’ success in life. Relaxed, confident, happy teachers educate and nurture relaxed, confident, happy students that succeed academically with ease.
