While students are battling unprecedented levels of anxiety, bullying, and depression, educators are facing major challenges curricula alone can’t solve. Teachers are getting burned out due to the pressures of standardized testing, lack of time to plan and teach, overcrowded classrooms, personal matters, and student issues that originate from outside of school. In this interactive edWebinar with a classroom teacher and a former school counselor, viewers learn to:

  • Identify causes and effects of student and teacher anxiety
  • Select strategies to help students reduce test anxiety
  • Practice anxiety-reducing techniques for themselves

We believe that the single greatest influence in the classroom is the teacher. Unfortunately, their innate ability to inspire and motivate their students sometimes comes at the expense of their own well-being. Therefore, reducing anxiety for teachers and students is critical to classroom success. Watch this session to tackle both!

This recorded edWebinar is of interest to teachers, school leaders, and school counselors of all grade levels.
