T&L 2900: VIR: Social, Emotional, and Physical Wellness for Students and Teachers (Grades PreK-12)
As most teachers are acutely aware, being a teacher is an awesome privilege, which is why it is one of the most rewarding and satisfying professions; however, it also has the potential to be one of the most stressful. Additionally, many teachers also know that students who have poor mental health and coping skills are more likely to disengage from school, engage in unhealthy behaviors, and lack healthy relationships with adults.
