Heather has a passion for self-evaluation, emotional intelligence in the workplace and motivation in achieving goals, which she is now using in a coaching environment in her personal business, as well as offering online courses to teachers. The need for teacher wellbeing is of utmost importance, now, more than ever, with adapting to hybrid learning in many schools, the lack of face-to-face contact and many teachers dealing with stress and anxiety. Giving teachers the tools to deal with life’s adversities and become equipped to face challenges in a professional manner is essential for teachers to achieve their goals, work to their best ability and create positive relationships at work.
