About Bethanie Hansen DMA, PCC, CHWBC
Strategic Educational Leader and Coach
Thank you for visiting the professional website of Dr. Bethanie Hansen, strategic educational leader and coach.
What does a strategic educational leader and coach do?
This is my special niche of helping educators thrive so they can help students develop their potential and promote resilience and lifelong learning in their communities. Educators care about developing the potential of students they teach, and about nurturing them in the subject-area. And because educators give their time and energy to teach others, they also need help thriving through healthy wellbeing strategies and work-life balance. I help in both areas–wellbeing and teaching–by sharing personalized tools and brain-based strategies I’ve developed and collected, listening, learning about people, and guiding them to draw on their strengths and abilities. It’s exciting work that brings clarity and confidence to those I work with and keeps me growing, too!
If you’re looking for help teaching online or teaching music appreciation, you’re in the right place! Take a look at the Online Teaching Lounge podcast produced by American Public University and shared on this website to get started. The podcast supports online educators in their great work of changing lives through the power of education at a distance while living a balanced life (available through Apple Podcasts, Google Podcasts, Stitcher, Spotify, iHeart Radio, Audible, Amazon Music, and other platforms).
If you’re looking for even more ideas about thriving rather than just enduring in your work as a leader and educator, please visit my companion website DrBCoach.Com and the Mindset for Life podcast devoted to those subjects.
