CONNECT… Especially for Educators

According to the National Labor Relations Board, teachers have some of the highest levels of occupational stress. Instructors with these characteristics create learning environments that can have harmful effects on both students and other people in the learning community. To prevent all these, we offer our Connect… Especially for Educators program.

CONNECT provides teachers with an opportunity to develop their social and emotional skills. Both of these are needed to improve interactions with the school staff, as well as with parents, guardians, and students.

Although teaching is often done in the isolation of a classroom, good teaching involves collaboration and communication with other colleagues. Through our training program, your staff can capitalize on all coworker relationships.

Our presentation follows a similar outline and format as CONNECT…the Pieces. The difference is that it is specifically designed to bring educators together for support, learning, and personal growth. CONNECT… Especially for Educators will also serve as a model, allowing teachers to educate students on how to resolve conflicts and be emotionally competent.

NETWORKING… For the Novice

Many schools experience emergency hiring or a high number of teachers replaced with novice teachers. The National Commission on Teaching and America’s Future have also reported that less than 1% of beginning teachers have participated in sustained, comprehensive induction programs.

Through our training, we can address the problem of retention that is acute in both urban and nonurban schools. Tips and techniques are provided to help the novice assume their new role in the classroom, and prevent feelings of isolation and unpreparedness. We can also work with you to develop a plan of induction for your novice teachers.

I have never assessed a training afterwards, after its conclusion, with higher marks. Every evaluation came back excellent, and every evaluation indicated personal growth from employees. I think that’s the highest endorsement anyone could give.

I had some great, positive feelings after leaving the seminar today. I have a lot of stress in my life with work, people, etc. and to learn to deal with it in a positive manner with tools I am walking out of the seminar with makes me feel like tomorrow I don’t have to be stressed…

This was one of the BEST, if not the BEST workshops I have attended at my school. Dr. J is an excellent speaker who interacted with everyone. She provided examples and stories to make ideas real. You leave having a sense of where you need to improve.
