Most people just want to feel heard. Most people, when stressed or upset, just want someone to listen and empathize without judgement.
It’s hard to find a person who understands the special demands of teaching— someone who doesn’t have any stake in you or your status; someone who does not work with you or rely on you nor someone who will rat you out or make you paranoid or believe that you suck or are weak.
You need another person who understands the stresses and joys and challenges of teaching AND who is trained in empathic listening.
I am a former high school teacher, author, life coach and soon to be mental heath counselor. I want to counsel and coach teachers from now until forever because I think we get neglected and are severely misunderstood. This pandemic is surely twisting things even tighter for teachers, and I want to help!
If you are a parent and want to give your kids teachers a great gift, send them a nice note with a link to my site or my contact info below.
Tell them you don’t really understand what they must be going through but that you know someone who does and can be of service and genuine support.
I want to help as many people as I can during this pandemic using my unique skills.
Please teachers, don’t be shy. It’s totally confidential and you have my word on that! I’m on YOUR side!
