The Fit Teacher: Respect Your Body, Feel Better and Teach Energized
Monday, February 11, 2013 from 6:00 PM to 7:30 PM (EST)
New York, NY
Teaching is intense: teachers rise early, eat sporadically, stand and move constantly, and are exposed to volatile environment conditions.
As schools look to improve teacher retention and prevent burnout, teacher wellness is often not discussed. Yet, there are basic things teachers can do to have better focus, move correctly throughout the classroom and prevent injury and pain while increasing your energy levels. In this workshop, teachers will learn how basic everyday habits are preventing them from teaching at their full capacity. Participants will leave understanding how to make that pain they feel disappear.
