We know a happy classroom is an essential key to not only a positive school culture and less teacher burnout, but also to increased student engagement and student success.
This course will offer ideas on how to avoid teacher burnout and create strong, positive habits that will impact not only your classroom, but your personal life as well. Creating small daily habits lead to larger life consequences.

In this course you will:
- Demonstrate how to create a learning climate that builds confidence for students and teachers
- Assess current habits in both the classroom setting and personal setting
- Use research-based, hands-on techniques from experienced teachers and educational professionals who have actually used them – with great results!
- Be exposed to quick and easy strategies to foster positive habits for teachers and students.
- Identify factors that may inhibit the development of strong habits in the classroom
- Understand how mindset impacts classroom environment
- Utilize practical ways to help overcome stress and keep a positive mindset
- Rediscover the passion and excitement that made you want to become a teacher
“Another great class! It was awesome to have some more amazing ideas of creating habits in our classrooms and in our lives outside of school. Fresh perspectives, gentle reminders, and an awful lot of fun presentations. This was fast-paced and easy to enjoy– not at all what I imagined a continuing education class might be. I really appreciate the quick feedback and personalized attention– I feel valued as a student, just as I would want for my own students. Thanks again, Bob and friends!” –Kimberly W., NE
“This course worked well for my busy schedule; I was able to work on it mainly on Saturday mornings for a few hours at a time. I was given several new ideas, and I also felt validated as I did some of the reflection exercises knowing that much of what I’m currently doing is valuable and making in difference.
I’ve taken Be A Great Teacher classes in person but never online. I’d definitely recommend both options to my colleagues.” –Andrea Sims, OH
