Course Content Summary
Introduction: Joy and meaning in my life and career as an educator.
A = Awareness of factors which have an impact on us, especially stress and our needs. We make use of our Educator Howzit Map to build out our awareness. Awareness provides the opportunity to improve our knowledge of ourselves, the people around us and our circumstances.
B = Breathing, the importance thereof, and why our Mothers were right about being aware of our breathing before a test.
C = Compassion, why compassion is knowledge and is not just a vague term for the soft and weak. It is an absolute pre-requisite for being a strong, resilient and agile educator, in teaching and coaching, often in the midst of conflict. We deal with both sides of Compassion, self-compassion and other–compassion.
Expected Outcomes, taking back my Passion for Teaching:
|establish awareness of factors such as stress, which impacts on me;|
|assure better stress management – we make use of the extensively researched benefits of mindfulness;|
|develop better classroom engagement of learners;|
|establish responding (emotion coaching skills) rather than reacting (emotion dismissive behavior) in stressful situations at school;|
|learn short effective techniques to create calm and new energy to thrive and to stay grounded in the midst of daily challenges;|
|establish self-compassion (rather than self-pity, selfishness or self-esteem), ensure other compassion and better relationships with learners, parents and colleagues;|
|create safe spaces for educators and learners, as well as those within the unhealthy relationship triangle (victims, bullies and rescuers);|
|deal with bullying from learners, parents and colleagues by means of effective conflict resolution basics.|
