 This three (3) credit professional development graduate course has been carefully designed around the research of the last fifty (50) years, which indicates that teachers as well as administrators are working in an ever-more stressful work environment.  Initially participants will be assessed to identify actually how stressed they are. Participants then identify what are the primary causes of their stress at this point in their life, personally, family-wise and professionally. New and relevant findings about stress and its’ effects on the entire person will be shared as well. The 7 keys to managing your stress will be shared while those in attendance look at all 7 dimensions of their wellness and how they can attempt to balance their personal, professional and family lives. Equally important, the course provides several practical strategies to “clear the static from the attic” (their mind) and “the basement” (their bodies) so they can parent, teach and live more stress free. The course covers a wide variety of stress-reducing instructional strategies for educators as well as with their students. These student techniques, if followed, will result in higher student academic and achievement levels. Finally, the educators will learn how to implement and value specific practical classroom ideas, materials, tools and activities for effective management of classroom stress and the increase in energy levels. We
will discuss mindfulness, meditation, discuss teacher burn out, and how technology is stressing out teens.
