Creating a Supportive Environment for Students and Staff

Over the past 35 years I have been a teacher, teacher educator, program designer, educational administrator, educational consultant, and psychotherapist. I currently combine my skills as an educator and psychotherapist to offer teachers and administrators support in making sense of the emotional and relational data that floods their classrooms. I have written a book about this work called The Feeling of Teaching: Using Emotions and Relationships to Transform the Classroom. I am in the process of figuring out how to make this kind of support -- direct, experiential support that helps teachers develop their Social-Emotional Competence -- a norm in the field of education.   Betsy Burris Show Highlights
