Frequently Asked Questions

The Introduction Module and each of the “8 Core Lifestyle Habits” Modules taught by Betsy take 45-60 minutes to complete. These are hands-on activities that keep participants inspired and engaged as they move through them. The 9 Guest Expert interviews range from 30-60 minutes of listening time, where participants can choose to take notes or just listen as a way to expand their mind and craft.

The cost of not trying new and innovative approaches to address the issue of educator burnout heavily outweighs the risk. Staff turnover has been estimated to cost a minimum of 150% of an employee's salary.

The time and other intangible costs of staff turnover are that it creates disruption, frustration, and low morale for staff, students, and parents. The time and effort it takes to hire, train, and acclimate new staff only to have them leave 3-5 years later is exhausting and adversely impacts overall school culture. 

Yes. Each of the modules includes a worksheet for participants to complete as they go. A visual is also completed as part of each module to summarize the learning, and I always encourages my students to hang their visuals somewhere where they will see them for the month in order to enhance and solidify the learning. I provide a guided meditation/visualization with each module. Finally, participants are assigned their “Keepin’ It Real Accountability Check-In” form to complete before they begin each new module so that they reflect on and integrate the learning as they go through the course. 

Yes. The program is structured so that a point person could take the lead on organizing a set schedule for people to come together and take each module in person, or individuals could complete each module separately and then come together to discuss the learning “book club style.” That’s what’s nice about an online course. It allows for implementation flexibility and adaptability, which is exactly what we all need right now.
