We know that your budget is a moral document and that time is a precious commodity...
Investing in the personhood and holistic mental, emotional, and spiritual well-being of your educators is an investment in their professional capital.
Present TeacherTM professional development is strategically aligned with the Five C's of professional capital (Hargreaves & Fullen, Professional Capital, 2012)
*Click on each "C" to find out how!
Present TeacherTM is an innovative and inspiring, research-based professional learning program that draws on best practice in mindfulness, neuroscience, adult social and emotional theory, and teacher transformation theory to cultivate core capacities of educator mental, emotional, and heart/soul health using the stress of the profession as the experiential fuel to "burn in" to one's calling to teach.
Provide teachers with strategies, practices, and experiences rooted in mindfulness to deepen self-awareness, equity consciousness, and compassion for self and others so to learn how to adapt to the stressors of a heart-centered profession in a healthy way.
Strategically cultivate habits of mind and dispositions to remain calm in chaotic teaching moments, see student behavior through the lens of curiosity and compassion, and see the self as capable and confident through the many challenges of teaching.
Engage teachers in exploring the origins of teacher well-being while learning a research-base process to productively "process problems" in that commonly arise in teaching so that teachers can actualize their innate calm, resilience, and emotional agility to stage off burnout and realize happiness, joy, passion, and purpose in their teaching practice.
The Cost of Teacher Burnout
The data on the cost and impact of teacher burnout is shocking (and probably not surprising).
With over 50% of new teachers fleeing the profession within the first 5 years, right before they get really, really good, the profession of teaching is atrophying. We have a teacher retention and a teacher recruitment problem that is costing approximately $7.3 billion dollars per year.
