The Resilient Teacher
Episode 31 | The Power of Teacher SEL (it’s not just for your students) with Elizabeth Peterson
SEL is a big buzz word in education. We’ve heard how powerful it is and how it needs to be implemented for our students, but what about the teachers? SEL, or social emotional learning, is a LIFE LONG process. It’s where we gather this knowledge, skills, attitude that really support us in managing our emotions, navigating those social interactions, and really just regulation in general. It doesn’t stop being important once we get to doing our adult life.
I believe that SEL for teachers is one of these components that is missing in our current system because the power of SEL is in its ability to improve well-being and effectiveness, even for us as educators. When we have a SEL practice or reflection time, we can better handle these challenges and demands of teaching, where we are more satisfied with our jobs, but also impact us to the point where we have better classroom management and better student outcomes, which is just a ripple effect into our classroom, school, and community culture.
That’s why I am joined in this episode by Elizabeth Peterson of The Inspired Classroom to talk all things Teacher SEL (or SEAL as she likes to refer to it) and the power that it has on really overcoming, recovering from, and preventing burnout.
Elizabeth Peterson loves helping caring, creative teachers bring the arts practically and meaningfully into their classrooms. An arts integration specialist with degrees in Arts, Leadership and Learning, she hosts theinspiredclassroom.com. Elizabeth is the creator of SEAL, Social-Emotional Artistic Learning: a unique and holistic method of integrating the arts with SEL. She is in her 24th year of teaching and 16th year of hosting workshops, retreats and online courses in arts integration and SEAL. Elizabeth believes that when caring, creative teachers feel empowered with SEAL strategies in their classroom, they make a difference in their students’ lives every day.
Beginning Teacher Talk
Episode 223 | Teachers Are Not Classroom Therapists with Elizabeth Peterson
As teachers, we wear so many hats every single day. We are organizers, facilitators, cheerleaders, coaches, nurses, janitors, and so much more. Often, you may even feel like you’re expected to fit the role of “classroom therapist”. But here’s the thing – you aren’t a therapist, and you shouldn’t be expected to put that hat on.
I know how exhausting it can be to manage some of the personalities that you have in your classroom. When you signed up to be a teacher, you likely didn’t expect to be dealing with some of the behaviors and the challenges that you find inside your classroom. Yet, those behaviors and challenges are here, so what do you do? Our guest, Elizabeth Peterson is here to talk us through this and share some helpful strategies.
