The work-life balance is a constant challenge for professionals, especially when job-related changes impact our ability to maintain healthy boundaries. For K-12 educators, maintaining balance is an ever-present reality given the myriad of competing priorities within the field. Whether changing workplace environments in response to community health concerns, adapting to new State standards and curriculum, or facilitating students’ growth and transformation through instructional practices, K-12 educators juggle change constantly while walking the tightrope of work and life balance. These demands often contribute to stress and burnout. productivity and peace and often contribute to teacher stress and burnout. In this four-part interactive workshop series, we will explore the habits and mindsets that hinder or help our ability to perform as highly effective educators, maintain productivity, and experience peace. Participants will receive practical strategies grounded in research to support both their personal and professional health and well-being.
To close the learning cycle, participants will return to their reflections and engage in activities that support fueling the SRL process and experiencing peace.
