Personal Growth + Professional Development

We believe in addressing the needs of the whole person. If teachers are going to offer their best in the classroom, their health and well-being need the same attention as their skills and knowledge. Take an interactive course that allows for coaching from the course creator.

Benefits of PG

•    Higher energy levels
•    Greater patience for students
•    Stronger investment in their jobs
•    A more cohesive faculty with fewer interpersonal conflicts
•    Reduced complaints from parents
•    Fewer sick days  
 
Professional development courses help educators using the paradoxical theory of change. To first address an issue, we must understand the nature of that issue first. Whether this has to do with dealing with difficult students or appreciating learning disabilities, the learner will gain a greater appreciation for themselves in relation to the student and classroom. Even the most dreaded courses are made interesting and enjoyable using humor, motion graphics, and animation. PD courses include and promote:

Benefits of PD

•    Use of theory to guide strategic change
•    Greater awareness of the student’s perception of the teacher
•    Use of mindfulness based techniques to promote improved learning cultures
•    Appreciation of legal issues to reduce unnecessary liability
•    Recognition of diversity as it applies to race, culture, gender, and learning styles
•    Knowledge about organizational health and the teacher leader role in improving school culture

Courses are offered by physicians, psychologists, retired educators, college professors, nutritionists, and other experts in their field. Schools who offer resources for a teacher's personal growth will see in their faculty:
