(Online) Teaching From the Heart

Monday, August 2 –

Event Time: 9:00 a.m. - 2:00 p.m.

The University of Maine Hutchinson Center
80 Belmont Ave. (Route 3), Belfast

Have you ever felt like you were more of a problem-solver than a teacher? Your best-made lesson plans are delayed by listening to your students argue about a problem that occurred at recess. You deal with this stress by addressing the class in a way that you regret. You know you’re a great teacher but you’re overwhelmed. If this sounds familiar, Teaching from the Heart is the online professional development course for you. Using a curriculum based on Nonviolent Communication principles, this program will provide you with tangible ways to manage your classroom and reach your full potential as an educator. Our doubts as caregivers and teachers are inevitable. If we have a system to refer to when these doubts creep in, we can relax. This dynamic online program will be offered synchronously via Zoom—you’ll need access to a stable internet connection. Participation is encouraged. This is NOT a pre-recorded program. Instructor Gina Simm has taught in early childhood education for over 30 years. Her background in Montessori education and children’s theater launched her into the world of public schools where she spent most of her career as a first-grade teacher (including a year spent teaching English in China). Simm worked closely with Miki Kashtan, a co-founder of Bay Area Nonviolent Communication. Simm’s knowledge of Nonviolent Communication has transformed her classroom into a place where systems of the heart create a child-centered environment for moving through conflict. PROGRAM FEE $125 CONTINUING EDUCATION CREDITS Participants will receive a certificate of completion and 0.6 CEU/6 contact hours are available.
