Life Coaching for Teachers: Happy Teachers for Better Students

Description

Concept by Marta Mandolini

The course is designed to offer an incomparable occasion to reflect on yourself as a Teacher. It addresses both young teachers wanting to build a long and satisfying career and experienced teachers willing to refresh their approach to teaching.

Teaching is somehow a mission, and being a teacher is a wonderful job that doesn’t often finish when you leave the school building every day, so it can be difficult to disconnect.

Teachers involved in the program will acquire a certain level of self-awareness about their role, their approach to teaching, and their being part of a bigger team, in order to prevent stress and promote a healthy work-life balance, satisfaction, and effectiveness.

By the end of the course, teachers will learn how to set healthy boundaries to cope with overworking, how to regulate emotions, how to use assertiveness to respond properly to colleagues, students, and families’ demands, and how to maximize their strengths in order to minimize hurriedness and time-wasting.

They will participate in group dynamic exercises and share their experiences in an international environment, experiencing effective communication techniques, mindfulness, and creative management tools.

The program of the course will follow a general structure but will actually be influenced by the topics, needs, and situations that will emerge in the group, that may be different throughout different course editions.

Learning about the Healthy Mind Platter was really instructive. This is a great tool to use in the classroom to give the students autonomy in monitoring their own brain health."

It was a very interesting and relaxing course. I learned a lot about myself as a teacher and as a person, I learned about emotions, solving problems at work, and reducing stress, the activities were very creative and relaxing. The atmosphere was nice and calm, I enjoyed the experience and I strongly recommend this course.

The course was quite inspiring and practical. Every day there were countless activities that allowed interaction among all and that became a clear added value for my day-to-day as a teacher. I really enjoyed having this opportunity.
