Teachers Helping Teachers

Description

Our online group is here to connect you with fellow teachers and provide a safe space for support. You will learn helpful tools and resources to help cope with the stress and pressures of teaching. What is the structure of the meeting? Our groups are 90 minutes in length. The first 30 minutes of the meeting is providing information and establishing group guidelines. The remaining 60 minutes is for sharing, venting, and supporting each other. You will not be allowed to enter the group once we begin sharing in order to keep it a safe and confidential space. Who is invited to attend? Pre-K - 6th teachers are welcome. Please note: additional support groups for secondary teachers will be added. Will I have to talk about my experiences? Everyone will be asked to give a short introduction, however you can choose to keep it confidential. For example, my introduction could simply be "elementary teacher from Texas." After introductions, you are not required to talk or share and may listen in. Please remember your experiences and contributions are valuable and may help someone else. We encourage you to do what's best for you.

HeyPeers School Services

HeyPeers recognizes the inherent stressors and challenges that individuals experience in educational systems. Students, teachers, administrators and parents all try to work together to make learning work but all can become frustrated in the complex educational environment. HeyPeers Student Services brings individuals together with others who are in the same role to help and support each other. Each session will have some brief self-help tips to explore and open discussion of the participant's issues and successes. Meetings will be led by trained facilitators who have personal experience that is similar to that of the participants. Scheduled sessions are "drop-in" meetings - you may register for one at a time - no long term commitment is required. Register for a meeting today!
