Teacher comment: “This class has the power to deliver an educator from toxic stress and ensure that a person’s teaching career is not only successful but happy and invigorating! The research outlined in this class on the social brain – is revolutionary! In addition, if teaching in a classroom can be likened to driving a car full of kids, then I feel I’ve been driving my car without a 4th wheel. This class gave me the 4th wheel I needed (which is the understanding of how to build healthy relationships in and outside of the classroom) to make my teaching experience a smooth ride. Why wasn’t this course offered to me before? This course is outstanding and I finally feel I have the missing piece to a successful teaching career! Thank you Education4Equity for creating an online course that revived my teaching passion.” (5 Stars)
