Once I’m a Certified Teacher, am I required to co-teach?
The SIY program represents sixteen hours of content and exercises. The time required to learn this content is substantial. The amount of practice required to then bring the content and experience to life for participants is also substantial. Even our most experienced Certified Teachers tell us each time they co-teach SIY they learn something new, make new connections to the material, and understand different ways of explaining particular points in an effort to help it land with diverse audiences. In addition, have two teachers and two perspectives provides the best participant experience of the program.
Because of this, and in order to better support our Certified Teachers to deliver an impactful SIY program, we HIGHLY recommend that Certified Teachers co-teach SIY, but it is not required for client or pro bono programs. Co-teaching is required for SIY Public Programs.
