Reclaiming Your Passion for Teaching with Balance and Bandwidth

Course 5271

“Bandwidth,” is the term the course textbook authors use to describe what educators need in order to have the energy, passion, and time to feel balanced and successful. Complete the Brain Energy & Bandwidth Survey to measure and evaluate your current bandwidth, then explore sustainable strategies in individual and learning community pathways. Create a “Bandwidth Band,” educator group to discuss what fills, or drains, your cup and design a vision board to encourage strong self-care practices. Learn ways to prioritize tasks, time management tips, and how work-life balance can make you an even more effective and efficient educator. Explore multitasking, how modern connections and disconnections steal focus, and understand how the basic needs of sleep, food, and exercise are the foundation for flourishing.

This course will support all educators with actionable strategies, so you can feel your best both inside and outside of school.
