How Can I Apply a Resilient Mindset to My Teaching Practice?

Educators have unilaterally been through the toughest years of teaching in recent history. With the move to online and back again, stress and anxiety has escalated. Teachers are “powering through” and “burning out” at the same time, resulting in taking care of themselves becoming much less of a priority. A timely reminder on how to take care of themselves, with proven strategies, could make the difference in how they move forward as they continue to navigate the ever-changing teaching and learning environment. It’s safe to say resilience is needed now more than ever.

Resilience helps teachers identify the emotional cost of teaching and assists in targeting strategies that can be implemented to decrease and recoup that cost. This 20-Minute Mentor explores healthy perspectives on mindsets associated with resilience. The presenter shares, through his own personal experiences, how to become a resilient teacher who can thrive, sustain, and enjoy a career of giving and serving students by recognizing and implanting strategies that can be included in your teaching practice.
