Happy Teacher Professional Development will be in the Chicago area facilitating their popular Happy Teacher workshop this April. The workshop focuses on self-care, time management, and integrating social-emotional learning. Teachers feeling overwhelmed and at risk of burnout are encouraged to attend.
Teacher shortages are impacting schools across Illinois. Low pay and the daily stressors of teaching are some of the top reasons why teachers leave and young people are hesitant to join the field. Happy Teacher Professional Development focuses on these issues, making them different from other companies.
