5 Tips To Save Your Teacher Voice

As an educator, you are using your voice a lot. Whether it’s giving lesson plans, teaching, explaining assignments or quieting down a noisy classroom, your voice can really be put through the ringer. Take a look at these tips to help you keep your voice healthy and eliminate hoarseness so you can remain at your best.

  1. Stay hydrated

    1. This one may seem like a no-brainer but it is very important to keep yourself hydrated. Bring a water bottle with you and take sips throughout the day to keep those vocal chords strong.

  2. Speak slowly

    1. Take your time while you’re speaking. No need to rush! Be precise with your words as to not overuse your energy.

  3. Learn how to project

    1. There’s a difference between projecting and yelling. Learn the appropriate way to use your breath as to not harm your vocal chords. We happily offer motivational speaking services here!

  4. Stay healthy

    1. Stock up on vitamin c and keep yourself healthy! Be sure to get rest when you can.

  5. Use steam

    1. A great vocal steam is super helpful when it comes to keeping your vocal chords hydrated.

  6. Avoid clearing your throat

    1. Although this may be a tough habit to break, it can be done! Harsh clearing of your throat can cause further damage to already tired vocals.

  7. Use non vocal attention grabbers

    1. Hand signals

    2. Clap rhythms

    3. Bell or whistle

If no one has told you yet today, you are doing a great job. Take care of yourself because you’re worth it! You are making a difference in our educational system and impacting more lives than you know. Stay healthy and keep up the great work.
