Teachers are already going over and above the call of duty when performing their day to day tasks. Consider the increase in job satisfaction when classrooms are well lit, temperature controlled, and secure.
Energy efficiency will have similar impacts on teachers and school staff as the benefits that a student will have. Due to a better and healthier learning environment for students, the teaching environment will also be greatly improved. Students with increased focus and concentration will assist the teachers in being able to provide a more beneficial education. The health effects of the improved air quality from HVAC system upgrades directly carries over to the teachers and staff along with the students. Safety is another major benefit of upgrading your facilities lighting. LED lighting in parking lots can provide a safer place for teachers to park and to feel secure when walking to and from their vehicles.
Along with providing a better learning and teaching environment, increased awareness of energy efficiency can also be used by teachers as a great learning tool for their students. Teachers will have a better understanding of energy efficiency and be able to get the students involved with helping to conserve energy and save money.
