Teachers are showing the affects of the pressures and demands of their jobs: “I can’t meet the needs of all my students.” “I thought I was going to lose it when Nick acted up in class again.” “I’m so stressed out that I don’t want to teach tomorrow.” Statements like these are all too familiar to educators. What teacher or administrator hasn’t felt stresses that make it difficult to focus on teaching and learning? Who hasn’t needed to call on a deep well of social and emotional resources to overcome those challenges? We are adopting a teachers lounge and turning it into a place for teachers to recharge, renew and get centered before walking into their classroom, therefore helping them reignite the joy of teaching. The lounge will be properly equipped and redesigned and mind body balancing, relaxation and coherence building tools will be taught.
