61. Mindfulness & Self Care Techniques for Teachers in STEM with Jen Rafferty
You may have read the title of today’s episode and thought, how does this relate to STEM? Friend, keep listening because this is a wonderful episode that every teacher needs to hear. Stepping into a new role like elementary STEM can be completely overwhelming. Many of you are like me and have transitioned from a classroom of your own with 25-plus students to teaching all the students in the school with little to no curriculum and lots of fancy tools.
Well, today’s guest completely understands that. Today I am speaking with Jen Rafferty from the Empowered educator. Jen shares about mindset as a teacher, different types of stress, setting boundaries, and self care techniques for teachers. You definitely want to listen to the end and also take notes because she has wonderful explanations of all the topics that we discussed today.
