Dare To Be An Exceptional Teacher
A professional learning webinar with Maggie Dent.
This webinar ran live in March 2022. Sign-up now for lifetime access to the replay and additional resources.
If you or your school, need a dose of enthusiasm and inspiration, this webinar may be exactly what you need.
Teaching is way more complex than many appreciate. It involves engaging so much more than the brain in teaching facts, strategies, processes and achieving academic goals. Teaching is about changing human behaviour. And given that today’s students are digital natives, changing their behaviour can be more of a challenge than it used to be.
On top of that, our world is full of fear and uncertainty, and that destroys passion, especially over time.
The school that focuses on social cohesion, relational safety, mutual respect and a wide variety of opportunities for achievement, will create an environment that supports the wellbeing and mental health of everyone in the school including staff.
Sometimes what dedicated teachers need in order to keep turning up and doing their best – despite the crippling workload and the test-driven, accountability possessed world of education – is something to stoke the fire in their belly. Remember that? It’s the thing that drove them to become teachers in the first place.
In this webinar based on her e-book of the same name author, educator (and former high-school teacher) Maggie Dent aims to stoke that fire…
In this session, Maggie explores:
> The six fundamental attributes of the most exceptional educators based on research, life experience and anecdotes.
> Why sometimes the most exceptional teachers in a school who are transforming lives positively may go unnoticed and unappreciated.
> How to create the safe, inclusive classroom that all students (especially those with learning challenges, impacts of trauma and or difficult home lives) need to create hope for their own futures.
> How to tap into your students’ invisible drive to learn and their self-motivation— which just needs to be found and nurtured!
> Ways to a calmer classroom – for you and your students.
Join Maggie for this professional learning experience that aims to be thought-provoking, validating, a bit funny and inspiring.
