Teachers (Burnout Prevention)
Teachers are incredible members of our society, paying attention to how we can positively influence our children. However, teachers can also suffer from mental drawbacks such as anxiety, burnout, and depression. We’re finding that more educators are having mental health-related absences.
The Power of your voice: Siya found his voice- spoke up against injustice in South Africa. His story is not only motivational for school students, but for teachers as well. When a positive boost is needed, these sessions are the perfect way to motivate all educators. ‘Education is the most powerful weapon with which WE can change the world’, Nelson Mandela.
Let us equip our children and young people for the real world that is diverse. Let’s celebrate Diversity, and address inequalities and injustices in our society, but also let’s empower our children and Young People to be independent critical thinkers.
My mission as an educator is to Educate, Enthuse and Empower Young People to be resilient, BOUNCE forward, and THRIVE.
