Does Teaching Have to Be Overwhelming?

Anyone Would Be Hard Pressed

Professional educators like you shoulder a brutal workload in today's schools.

Considering that you cope with endless time pressures, inadequate staffing, excessive class sizes, endless regulations, making do with inadequate materials, navigating relationships with parents, and the juggling of far too many other tasks and duties—all at a pay rate most people would not accept for half the amount of work—it's a miracle that you accomplish all that you do with such grace and diligence.

Understandably, even everyday little problems (because there are so many of them) generate enormous stress. When combined with a lack of support—real or perceived—from parents and other community members, or even from colleagues, it's inspiring to see you soldier on with such dedication and enthusiasm!

You have earned the professional respect and courtesy from the larger community that you deserve to receive. The Edge recognizes your service to our kids and our community and thanks you.

The Edge Can Lighten Your Load

Many decades ago, President John F. Kennedy said:

“Modern cynics and skeptics see no harm in paying those to whom they entrust the minds of their children a smaller wage than is paid to those to whom they entrust the care of their plumbing.”

How sadly relevant this still is today!
We can't relieve you of the red tape and many or the other logistical burdens you face. But together, what we can do, is help transform your school into a more welcoming, rewarding, and safer community for everyone—students, teachers, administrators, and staff. We accomplish this by helping everyone in your school community connect and relate on a genuine level, perhaps for the first time ever.

Imagine how rewardingly different your teaching and learning environment will be if there is a ten-fold increase in empathy, acceptance and mutual understanding among students, as well as between students and staff.

Would that not make your load lighter?

The Edge approach encourages honest and mature emotional expression among all parties. Understanding and acceptance of others increases dramatically. Emotional awareness and personal self-control is heightened, while self-esteem and confidence give rise to school relationships founded on empathy, respect, and kindness.

Let us help lighten your load by helping to create a nurturing social environment at your school.

Let us help lighten your load by helping to create a more caring school community. Why spend your career struggling along in a world of me versus the other; of us versus them?
