Teaching in the Age of Anxiety (No cost for TMI PLC Members)

Teaching in the Age of Anxiety 

Today, teachers face daunting challenges. They struggle with unusually high and sometimes conflicting expectations, limited autonomy, limited resources, unnecessary state mandates,  and very  few opportunities for growth and development.   In addition, teachers must provide not only for the safety of their students, but for their intellectual, social, emotional and moral development in systems that offer little guidance and support. The students, in their charge, also grapple with their own issues like drug abuse, self-esteem, obesity, suicide as well as  many social media challenges and academic pressures. The schoolroom environment and the world at large has changed no doubt! 

  • How can teachers meet these challenges and function with clarity and positivity?
  • How do they achieve what is expected of them without undue stress and anxiety?
  • How do they meet everyday obstacles with resilience, optimism and coherence?
  • How can teachers and students work in times of uncertainty, time scarcity and information overload?
  • And, lastly, what can teachers do to deepen their grounding, make a real difference in the classroom and grow personally and professionally?

If you want answers to these questions to make work and life more manageable, reduce stress and become more productive... take this workshop! It will help you:

  • Greatly improve your concentration and ability to think clearly day-to-day
  • Grow your confidence and enthusiasm about your capability as a teacher
  • Improve your productivity  in the classroom and reduce stress levels for you and your students
  • Build your resilience, optimism and self-belief
  • Improve relationships and communication skills with students, administrators and parents
  • Design a mind set for possibility and mental agility
  • Gain a renewed confidence and an understanding about your own behavior

Participants of this much-needed workshop will enjoy a number of helpful examples, exercises and live demonstrations to help them get the results they want and to help them transfer their newly acquired skills to the classroom setting.

Teaching In The Age of Anxiety is presented by Dr. Anthony Scannella, Former CEO of FEA and leading expert in the fields of education, leadership, NLP and behavior change. He is the co- author of Launch Your Classroom, a new and popular eBook available on Amazon, Innovative Interventions for Today’s Exceptional Children (Roman and Littlefield), and two other texts and numerous articles in the areas change, behavior modeling and learning.
