The Rejuvenated Teacher

Three weeks to reflect and build an action plan to help yourself and others create a balanced, rested, and abundant life.

Quality teachers are the essential ingredient to fostering a rich educational experience. For teachers to be at their best, it is crucial to provide time, resources, and community for educators to prioritize themselves, their lives, and their goals. Through reflective practices, participants will identify their personal and professional growth areas and prioritize personal wellness by establishing healthy boundaries. By the end of the course, participants will design a sustainable action plan targeting their own needs or produce a professional development plan to help others create a balanced, rested, and abundant life.

Personalized Healthy Balance Meter

A sample assignment from Week 2 of the class The Rejuvenated Teacher.

1. Research

Consider the importance of identifying growth areas and the impact such variables have on a feeling of balance and healthy boundaries. Conduct research through diverse resources such as scholarly articles and podcasts on stress management, self-care strategies, and taking stock in oneself.

2. Discussion

Consider one growth area that needs focus to meet the goal of becoming a more rejuvenated teacher. Describe what a healthy balance for that growth area could look like.

3. Practical, Hands-On Application

Using the Healthy Boundaries Meter resource, define “not enough,” “too much,” and a “centered” balance. Consider strategies to remind yourself of the need for balance and maintain “centered."
