You Can’t Teach a Thing .. if you ain’t got that Zing!!!
A Well Being Program for Teachers
with Kerry Cue
What? This hilarious and practical PD program combines:
1 1/4 hr Re-Energising Workshop for Staff
+ 1 1/4 hr Master Class to skill up the Leadership Team to provide on-going well-being initiatives.
Why? Teaching is demanding. There’s no time. You’re constantly addressing the high needs of students, parents and the administration. Multiple issues from new coursework to marking criteria to allergy management to eco-friendly power usage, demand your attention. Resources are an issue! Accessing technology is a challenge! In class students are distracted, disinterested and/or agitated by the electronic noise, family dysfunction and the economic pressures of today. Teaching is exhausting, and that’s on a good day. You need strategies to maintain your energy levels to power through each new day.
Who? Author and humorist, Kerry Cue, taught Chemistry and maths before becoming a best selling author of 18 books, a columnist published in newspapers across Australia and an electrifying speaker who travels around Australia showing audiences how to unwind and have fun.
When? During a conference or after school.
Where? At your school.
What do you get? Staff will enjoy a much-needed dose of ‘Laughter Therapy’ and also take away positive insights, practical strategies and creative solutions for the classroom and beyond.
