Emotions; Teachers; Teaching

Adam Saenz (Department of Psychiatry, Texas A&M University)

Advisor: Sam Bradford, NHC Teacher Advisory Council

Consider this quote from Emerson: “The wise [person] in the storm prays to God not for safety from danger, but for deliverance from fear. It’s the storm within that endangers … not the storm without.” The country has endured the significant storm of the pandemic over the course of the past three years, and the field of education—students and educators alike—has been impacted deeply. Although we are progressing from the pandemic, the emotional fallout continues.

Emotional intelligence begins with self-awareness and self-regulation. The research is clear: educators who practice emotional intelligence find better performance in all domains of their lives, and they report greater sustainability in the profession. This webinar will equip participants with practical emotional intelligence strategies to recognize and calm the storm within.
