Educators: Finding Balance in an Imbalanced Role
Educators are constantly striving for balance without a clear idea of what balance actually means for a group of professionals that, by their nature, put their focus on everyone else first. We explore the links between balance and wellness, challenges related to balance, and why prioritizing educator wellness is an integral but often overlooked part of the education system. If we relook at what balance means, including the commitment to self and to the profession as a whole, balance is possible!
- Understand the relationship between balance and wellness as it relates specifically to the role of an educator.
- Develop more realistic expectations around what balance and wellness should look like for educators.
- Explore wellness and balance goals within the framework of a personal wellness plan.
