Zen Classroom – Stress Management For Teachers

Course Description

A recent study by the Education Support Partnership found that 80% of teachers reported feeling stressed at work. This was exacerbated by the recent pandemic and the effects of managing their classrooms in challenging circumstances. 

Stress management is important for teachers because they are often in high-stress situations. They may have to deal with difficult students or parents or have to teach in challenging environments. If teachers can manage their stress, they will be able to better handle these situations.

This stress management for teachers training course will provide educators with the knowledge and tools needed to manage stress in their professional and personal lives. The course will cover the causes and effects of stress, as well as effective stress management techniques.
