In the past, some teachers have received financial support from their schools or been able to avail of research or faculty development budgets.

The contents of the Burnout to Brilliance workshop have been created especially for teachers, and will address, among other important topics, the unique pressures put upon and felt by teachers in Japan.

The timing of this workshop is perfect for teachers feeling the burnout from grading, unenthusiastic students, boredom, lethargy, difficult colleagues, long meetings, homesickness, and of course, the heat.

From Burnout to Brilliance will help you to get your mojo back right now, while providing you the tools and techniques to recognize when burnout is about to hit in the future.
