The relationship between teaching and physical well-being is a tenuous one at best. Not only do those who suffer from pain and fatigue face extra challenges but teaching in general can cause physical injuries that make the job more difficult.
In this webinar, teachers will hear how general principles of physical wellness apply to their profession, and how to utilize that knowledge in their daily practice.
By attending, you will:
- Learn strategies to manage pain and fatigue at school.
- Discuss the basics of ergonomics and voice function in the classroom.
- Find strategies to maintain general physical wellbeing in the school environment.
