WELCOME TO IDEAL CONSULT
Teachers can be known to be the most patient of all the professions. We, as educators, constantly try to satisfy the demands of our peers, administrators, parents, not to mention our families, all the while trying to make sure our students are prepared to become life-long learners that leave little to no time for us to spend on our physical, mental, and spiritual wellbeing. We are constantly under stress and can burn out quickly, which means neither the students nor we benefit and we have inadvertently involved ourselves in a no-win situation.
A teacher’s energy and mood can affect the students and the tranquillity of the classroom. If teachers are mindful, their positive vibes will turn the class into a peaceful sanctuary where holistic learning will take place. Students will be actively engaged, ready to reach their full potential, and will be more open to participating in class. An active learning environment will reduce anxiety and stress for both the learner and the teacher.
Ideal Consultant programs are unique, customised and provide hands-on workshops that encourage collaborative and reflective practices. As mindful educators, we aim to coach and support teachers to improve their instructional practices and student outcomes to build a resilient, compassionate, and caring school system for teachers, students, and their families.
