Tending to Teacher:
Self Care for Music Educators
The demands placed on educators grow every school year. It is easy to become overwhelmed with the quantity of tasks that need to be accomplished each day. Self-care is no longer a luxury. It is essential if you’re going to be your best professional self.
Much like you’re told that the oxygen mask on an airplane must first be placed first on your own body during a flight emergency before attempting to support others, effective teachers must learn to first take care of themselves before they can effectively care for others.
In this workshop we explore four aspects of the self that must be attended to: body, mind, heart, and spirit.
Together we will cultivate a customized “tool kit” for supporting yourself and your colleagues when the pressure mounts and it feels like a breakdown is approaching.
Work/Life balance is a myth. This workshop will support you in discovering that your work and your life are interconnected. They are not two different things that need to be balanced. You will learn to see it all as your life and you will step on a path toward WHOLENESS that supports you in living a life that works, for you and others.
