The Teaching Well is a non-profit that was started by teachers for teachers.  We believe that the health and well-being of educators makes a critical difference in school cultureteacher retention, and the lives of students


"(The Teaching Well) truly lives up to their name!  They are a gift to the world of educators and all the students we touch.  This workshop deepened my understanding of how stress impacts my classroom and my students, and gave me practical tools that I was able to practice within the workshop that I can now take into my classroom...This workshop made me a more kind, thoughtful, and caring educator because it gave me the permission and skills to be kind, thoughtful, and caring to myself.  Happy teachers make happy students, and (The Teaching Well) helps make teachers happy!"

-Kelley S., 8-year teacher, Oakland


                            “The message was clear: The way to create a mindful classroom is by being more mindful myself.”
