Teacher Wellness and Ethics, seriously?

Event Date(s): Sat, 2022/08/27 - 9:30am
Event Location: Online – Zoom
Event Type: BEd Information Session

What does teacher mental health have to do with personal ethics? Doesn’t being worried about always doing the right thing just increase stress and mental health issues?

In this webinar we will uncover some deeper dimensions of personal ethics that generate “calmness and composure of mind” (Matthew Henry). We will be able to reflect on our internal readiness to embrace the Ontario College of Teachers Ethical Standards as a place of grounding us in the midst of change and uncertainty.
