Escape Room Team Building for Teacher

Let’s face it: school stuff has to deal with a lot of pressure daily. Kids are not the most loyal and well-behaved audience, and don’t even start talking about parents: their growing demands are often just impossible to satisfy. No wonder that teachers may feel the need to release at least some of the tension inside their collective. It would be unprofessional to take it out on children or their relatives, and career-breaking to regularly complain to the boss. So the fellow teachers become the central social circle, though the personal hopes and desires sometimes get things a little messed up.

If you want your school stuff team to develop the most natural and effective way, think about team building in escape rooms. Teachers work particularly hard every day – why not encourage them with a fun, entertaining activity that everybody will be fond of? Escape room team building for teachers is much more effective than the conventional measures like group psychology sessions, annual meetings, and trust exercises. Not only kids learn better while playing: this works the same way for adults, too.

Escape Rooms for Teachers and School Stuff

If you’ve never been to an escape room, you might think that the most critical part about this type of activity is finding the key and unlocking the door before the time runs out. That is right and wrong at the same time. The critical point is that the players have to work as a team and rely on each other if they want to progress. It is physically impossible for a single player to solve all the puzzles in 60 minutes and become the sole star of the show. Everyone needs to participate. The more people are involved (and the better they cooperate), the faster all the answers come out.

Work together, behave as a team, and think what the collective needs. That's what the teachers get used to saying, and now they have to act like that, too!

Note that an escape room for adults doesn’t only features stronger themes; the puzzles are harder, too. The riddles aren’t just there as a part of the attraction: they are meant to present a challenge. By overcoming all the problems, the teachers may achieve:

  • Professional development. The ability to change and think outside of the box is crucial for a teacher, regardless of the age of the students.
  • Leadership development. It is not easy to stay in the center of attention in a classroom full of kids. But if you’ve managed to command a team of grown-ups in a moment of need (and in escape rooms, everyone needs to become a leader at some point), then the skill will develop naturally.

The best part is that your school stuff will train to communicate, work together and trust each other. Use it to the advantage of your facility!
