Show Notes

In this episode, we chat with educational consultant and instructional coach Kelley Burt about the importance of social and emotional support for teachers. Kelley gives ideas and proven strategies for supporting teachers and enabling them to take care of themselves to ensure that learners are in good hands.

Here's a recap of the episode:

  • It's critical for teachers to realize what their social and emotional skills and competencies are and where they need help.
  • Teachers deserve the opportunity to say "things are hard" or "I'm struggling" or "I need some mental health resources" and be heard by the right person.
  • Providing socioemotional support for teachers influences positive student outcomes.
  • Educators' self-care matters now more than ever due to the teacher-learner separation caused by the pandemic
