Social and Emotional Well-being

At its core, teaching is really all about emotions. When I became a teacher, I wanted to change the lives of children, to give opportunities to disadvantaged kids, to develop critical skills everyone needs to have, and to inspire a deep love for learning that spans a lifetime. Maybe you had similar aspirations when you became an educator. 
 
According to research from University of Pennsylvania Graduate School of Education, between 40 and 50% of teachers will leave their role within their first five years working. Why? Quite simply, the stress of it all. Teachers are more likely to suffer work-related stress than any other profession  and a staggering one in five teachers feels tense about their job almost constantly. 
 
Yes, teaching is emotional—but not all of those emotions are positive. Educators need support now more than ever before. They need to develop real skills for managing stress and burnout, especially now that the work-life balance has been thrown on its head by remote learning. With our support, teachers can start to stay in the profession for the long run. 
 
In this enlightening keynote, Kim discusses the research around teaching, but also pivots the crowd towards understanding that their life, this profession, and their ability to maintain healthy levels of well-being are possible. She shares her top interventions for helping employees minimize the effects of stress and the overwhelming expectations placed upon them. Teachers leave this training feeling reignited and more in control of their live than they ever thought possible. 

After all 25% of job success is predicted by IQ and 75% is predicted by optimism levels, social support systems, and the ability to see stress as a challenge.
