Teacher Boot Camp



Teacher Boot Camp

A three-day skill-building intensive with Beverly Johnson, LMBT

June 23-25, 2014 | Monday-Weds., 9:00am-5:00pm | 21 CE contact hours | $445


Successful teaching relies not only on knowledge of the subject matter being presented – but on a set of core competencies in the art and craft of teaching.

This intensive will introduce you to these competencies, and will provide an opportunity to develop (or increase) your knowledge, skills and abilities in following key areas:

  • Theory and Methodology of Somatic Education
  • Dynamics of the Teacher/Student Relationship
  • Presentation skills
  • Management of the classroom environment
  • Observation, assessment and evaluation skills
  • Overview of curriculum and lesson plan design


Teacher Boot Camp will build your physical, mental and emotional capacity so that you can “go the distance” in the classroom. We will balance periods of rigorous activity with rest and reflection as a model for optimal pacing and resilience.

You will learn through a variety of methods including lecture, small and large group discussion, physical exercises, somatic practices, and demonstrations. We encourage you to take the first step towards becoming a great teacher… or bring your skills to the next level in this dynamic workshop. The Teacher Boot Camp is recommended, but not required for admission into The Spirit of Learning®.

Through this course, you will experience greater strength of character, self-confidence, and a sense of belonging in community. Our goal is to work hard and have fun!
