Thousands of teacher workshops are geared toward career topics like academic rigor, positive behavior management techniques, and engaging instructional practices. Most have one thing in common—they’re about making you a better teacher. Yet few help you live a better life or improve your physical and emotional well-being.
In this edWebinar, award-winning teacher, motivational speaker, and author Justin Ashley addresses the whole teacher: You and your bank account. Your health. Your social network. How can you be a better teacher . . . and a better parent, spouse, and friend?
Discover a revolutionary, holistic approach to living the teacher life. Learn how to:
- Catch happiness in every domain—social, career, physical/emotional, and financial
- Counteract burnout, reduce anxiety, and skillfully navigate through seasons of depression
- Set up fun family field trips without breaking the bank
- Build and live by a family creed
- Create and follow a monthly cash flow plan
- Bounce back from failure at work
- Take advantage of exercise opportunities before, during, and after school
- Increase your quantity and quality of sleep, so you can be fully present while you’re awake
- Inject “Purple Cows” into your lessons that make your classroom feel more like an academic playground than a learning prison
- Set four “Rising Sun” goals for the next school year
The whatever-it-takes philosophy of teaching is not the only way! If we want to last as educators and truly enjoy the teaching process, we need to succeed in every domain, not just in the classroom.
This edWebinar will be of particular benefit to kindergarten through junior high school teachers and school and district leaders. There will be time to have your questions answered at the end of the presentation.
