Finding School/Life Balance through Strategic Self Support and Wellness

3 Units

Course Description

Do More Than Survive, Thrive at Home and at Work with a Strategic Wellness Plan

As educators continue in their field, and deal with societal pressure - as well as pressure from administrators and parents- finding a balance between school, life, and wellness can be really tough. The pull in one direction or another causes stress, anxiety, and overwhelm. In order to enjoy one’s career, show up excited and create meaningful experiences for students - educators need to identify issues like these in their lives and have very real tools to use to counteract them so they can teach, and live, with joy and renewed energy - really live their best life.

Final submission for all sections is due on or before September 10, 2023.
