Welcome to The Inspired Secondary Educator: 21 Days to Happier and More Engaged Learners
Registration for this course is currently open!
Welcome! We are so excited to share our 21-day experience for inspired secondary (6-12) educators. We know that working in today’s high-stakes educational climate can leave teachers feeling like they don’t have the same opportunities to be as creative, engaging, and joyous as they once did. We also know that pushing against the trends of segregation, standardization, and compliance is exhausting and isolating.
We could all use more energy, more time, more strategies for engaging our students, and perhaps above all, more love. That is why we’ve designed this 21 day experience to give you and other inspired secondary educators more happiness, strategies for engagement, and ways to feel and get connected.
What you get
During this 21-day experience, you will receive practical strategies, resources, and a lot of love to help you infuse creative and inclusive energy into your teaching. Each day, for 21 days, you’ll receive an email from us highlighting the day’s ideas and resources, and a link to access the content. You’ll also receive exclusive access to a discussion group, where you and other inspired educators are encouraged to share even more ideas to help you head to school with renewed excitement and energy.
The experience is organized around three inspiring themes: Week 1 is all about creating happier classrooms, Week 2 about boosting student engagement, and Week 3 focuses on building more connections in your classroom, schools, and communities. At the bottom of this page you can check out a short excerpt from Week 2.
All of the strategies and resources we offer are evidence-based, grounded in recommended practice and designed to create more inclusive, engaging, and happier secondary classrooms. Throughout the 21 days we will also share inspirational quotes, guidance for self-reflection, and printables that can be shared with your friends and colleagues.
As this is an online experience, you will have the opportunity to interact and learn from other inspired teachers, as well as receive support and nurturing directly from us inside our online discussion group. Once you register you will have access to the 21 days of content… forever!
This means that we encourage you to engage in this experience at your own pace. Then, when you complete all 21 days, you will receive a Certificate of Completion, which can be credited as 3 hours of Professional Development with administrator approval.
Who are we?
This course has been designed by Dr. Kate MacLeod and Dr. Julie Causton, who have decades of collective experience both as educators and supporting educators. We realize that in order for teachers to do what we think is the most important job on earth, there is a deep need for more love and light in the way you all are supported.
We’d love you to join us. We know that happier teachers and happier learners mean more inclusive, engaging and exciting school experiences for all. It is our hope that this 21 day experience will help you capitalize upon your passion for teaching, boost your energy, and renew your commitment to happier inclusive teaching experiences.
We look forward to learning with you!
Kate & Julie
