Educator Peer Coaching

Smiling-Teacher-EducatorEducators provide so much for their students. Their hard work and dedication doesn’t go unnoticed! An article in USA Today states a recent survey by the American Federation of Teachers (AFT) found 61% of educators and school staff says their work is always or often stressful. To support educators and to help address the work and life challenges they face, we recently launched a new EAP benefit – Educator Peer Coaching.

Educator Peer Coaching is free one-on-one, confidential phone coaching for educators to explore interpersonal challenges, professional issues, job pressures and more. Our experienced peer coaches are both licensed teachers and counselors. Educators can consult peer coaches when they are experiencing:

  • High levels of stress and low levels of autonomy
  • Pressures from standardized testing and scores
  • Improving time management skills
  • Negative feedback from leadership, peers, parents or other staff
  • Concerns about substance abuse or other addictive behaviors
  • Difficulty balancing the demands of family and work responsibilities

Educator Peer Coaches are available now to support educators and help them meet their professional and personal goals.
