Present TeacherTM Training is an innovative and unique professional development program that focuses on the personal growth and transformation of the teacher.
Integrating experiential learning, teaching theory & research, neuroscience, and mindfulness-based practices, teachers and school personnel learn about their own humanity and innate resilience & potential to transform the stress of the profession into opportunities for personal and professional growth.
While earning Continuing Education Units (CEUs), teachers learn how to strategically stage-off burnout, process stress productively, be authentic, practice self-compassion, be emotionally resilient, deepen their passion & commitment to teaching, and most importantly, connect with all students.
Our 3 Core Purposes
Provide teachers with tools, strategies, and experiences rooted in mindful awareness for the deepening of self-awareness, self-compassion, and emotional resilience so that they can routinely adapt to the stressors of the profession in a functional and flexible way.
Cultivate the habits of mind and dispositions to remain calm in chaotic teaching moments, see student behavior through the lens of compassion and understanding, and leverage stress as opportunities for greater personal and professional insight and growth.
Teach teachers how to strategically access their inner resources of calm, resilience, and positivity for counteracting the onset and manifestation of burnout and emotional fatigue while increasing their innate capacity to actualize happiness, passion, and joy in their professional and personal lives.
