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 field trips without breaking the bank
Build and live by a personal 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 to make your classroom feel like an academic playground
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 recorded edWebinar will be of particular benefit to kindergarten through junior high school teachers and school and district leaders.
