“I want teachers to celebrate being part of a noble and vital profession not endure it as another of life’s stresses.” Mike Moore

“Teachers don’t exist to be the dart boards of society. They are an important player on society’s educational team.” Mike Moore

“Any society that thinks nothing of paying its athletes millions to throw a ball, or swing a bat  while reluctant to pay it teachers  a professional wage  is  experiencing a crisis in values.”
Mike Moore

 

If Your Problem, As A Teacher, Involves Not Knowing How To Cope With Difficult/Toxic Parents And Fellow Staff Members And You Want To Solve It NOW Then  Read On…

Coping With Toxic Parents 

A True Story

I recall teaching with a young woman who was going through hell and was forced to take an extended stress leave because of one toxic parent and one unethical fellow staff member.

What was the problem?

Her teaching style was low key.  She was a bit shy and lacked confidence when talking to parents and peers.

Because of this she was perceived as dull, uninteresting, weak and incompetent even though her students seemed to like her. (What we do in the name of concern for students.)

After 6 months on stress leave she returned to teach at another school under a stronger, more understanding and supportive principal. She never had a problem like that again and is now approaching 20 years in the profession.

The sad fact is that I have seen this type of story played out far too often with  more tragic results.

It is one of the reasons I have committed myself to becoming an advocate for teachers to help promote fair treatment, self confidence, assertiveness, joy and a healthy productive relationship between teacher and parent.

  • Mike
    The time I spent in that packed room with you brings a smile to my face every time I think of it and I am not alone in my opinion. Many of my staff mates were there too and you were the talk of our staffroom Monday morning!!(all great of course, especially the serenade at the end, perhaps you have a chance at a singing career.
    Thank you again for a truly entertaining session.
    As long we all continue to work in stressful job situations, you will always be needed and most appreciated!
    All the best!!
    Thank you again.

     JANET L, NEW BRUNSWICK, CANADA

  • Good morning Mike,
    I was very fortunate to have had the opportunity to attend one of your sessions on stress during our teacher PD day on the Fredericton campus. What a joy it was to have someone tell me that I am not crazy ( at least not yet) and that the amount of stress that teachers are faced with is a very real problem. I have been teaching for 22 years and there have been days where I just didn’t know what end was up.
    You gave me the push I desperately needed to wade through the rest of this year and I cannot thank you enough for your encouragement and kind words you gave to this profession that has become so challenging in recent times.
    I sincerely hope that I am fortunate enough to hear you speak again and that you continue to entertain and support us as we strive to educate these little darlings.
    Good health and great success to you.

The Art of Confident Living Mike Moore

How to Master the Art of Confident Conversation…Plus A Lot of Other Stuff

My name is Mike Moore.

Each year I travel extensively throughout Canada and the USA speaking to companies and organizations on the
Power of Humor, Positive Attitude and Self Confidence to promote
health and unleash human potential.

Do you know that we humans only achieve a tiny percentage of our
enormous untapped potential in our lifetime? Some say it’s between 2 and 5 percent?
Can you imagine the self improvement possibilities that could be open to us if we even increased that percentage to 25%? We could literally transform our lives and our world.

I would like to share with you in this special report my self
improvement seminar notes on the subject to help you live more
confidently and explode your untapped potential.
You owe it to yourself and those you love to become all that you can be.
Explode your human potential NOW!!!

Is This You???
I feel panic in social situations.

I hate people saying I’m shy in front of others even though they are right.
I feel inadequate.
I wish I could be more assertive.

I am tongue-tied in every conversation I am involved in.
I wish I could disappear in social settings.
I am a total flop in the romance department.

I never know what to say in social settings.

I don’t have confidence in myself.

I feel that others are better than I am.

 

 

STOP HIDING AND START LIVING!
Awaken Your Social Butterfly Within!

Here are a few things to think about, digest and apply to your life.
* Thoughts rule the world.
* All you achieve or fail to achieve in life is the result of your thoughts.
* Our thoughts really do shape our lives.
* “ The future is fashioned upon current thinking. ” Og Mandino
* Self mastery begins with thought control.
* When you change your thinking you begin to change your life.
* We are magnets attracting people and situations that are in harmony
with our dominant thoughts.
* Always reject self limiting thoughts.
* There is no limit to human potential.
* Stress is the #1 cause of illness and stress begins with negative
thinking. A situation isn’t stressful. Our response to it is.
* Negative thoughts and emotions can cause illness, positive thoughts
and emotions can result in health. Choose positive over negative.

The Magic of the Night Sky By Mike Moore

By Uncategorized

I love the night sky. There is something comforting, mysterious and hopeful about standing under a canopy of swirling stars. Each summer I go camping alone in Canada’s beautiful northland to satisfy a hunger for solitude, wilderness and the night sky. Away from city lights, there is nothing more awe inspiring than a star studded sky in the stillness of the wilderness.

I usually set up camp beside a lonely northern lake providing me with a long horizon and an uninterrupted view of the heavens. As darkness approaches I begin to sense an overwhelming closeness to the mysteries of the universe and a strong connection to the Source of all that is. I become aware of an alternate rhythm to life – a rhythm which is so easily lost amidst the frenetic pace of contemporary existence. Embraced by darkness, with stars too numerous to count and comforted by the gentle lapping of the waves I begin to realize how much I miss living in a city with its incessant, invasive brightness. It is as if I am rediscovering an enormous part of a lost spiritual heritage.

When sleep begins to engulf me and my eyes start to close, I reluctantly move toward my camper not wanting to miss a moment of this celestial display but realizing that I can’t resist the call to slumber any longer. In the warmth of my sleeping bag I let the silence and stillness lull me to sleep with the immortal words of Sophocles gently echoing across the centuries, ” Mortal I know I am, short lived. Yet whenever I stand beneath a multitude of swirling stars I no longer tread this earth, but rise to feast with God and enjoy the food of the immortals.” And so to sleep.
