In recent years, emotional intelligence (EI) has been a predominant “buzz word” in business and the corporate world. This is because research has shown that individuals with high EI are consistently the top performers in the workplace. EI has been a major factor in the success of the business setting, yet little has been discussed about EI in the educational setting. That is, until now. With the increased pressures of the teaching profession leading to teachers quitting, recent current events causing high stress situations resulting in teacher attrition, and elevated social and emotional challenges of 21st century teaching of our children, teachers are over it! This is because teacher well-being and EI were rarely, if ever, a part of our professional development. But it doesn’t have to be like this. In this highly interactive and engaging session, participants learn about Transformational Emotional Intelligence (TEI) and how, with personal and professional reflective practice, we can learn to appropriately respond to the world around us and effectively and efficiently educate ALL children with equity and empathy. Come see how TEI empowers the resilient teacher and transforms teaching. It’s time we bring back the passion of our profession. That is, if you B.E.L.I.E.V.E.!
In this highly interactive and engaging session, participants learn:
• How emotional Intelligence impacts teachers, teaching, student learning, classrooms, and school culture.
• The importance of teachers’ awareness of their own Emotional Intelligence and why it is vital to succeeding in today’s educational environment.
• The relationship between teachers’ Emotional Intelligence & embedding Social Emotional Learning in classrooms.
