The Teaching Well is a non-profit educator wellness organization started by teachers. We believe that the health and well-being of educators makes a critical difference in school culture, teacher retention, and the lives of students.
We contract with school sites to provide professional development in stress resilience, strengths development, nutrition, healthy communication, managing transferred trauma and classroom tools for mindfulness. To further our support, we offer one-to-one mentoring for administrators and teachers in order to create thriving, sustainable communities for educators and students alike.
"(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!"
