We believe the health and well-being of educators makes a critical difference in school culture, teacher retention, and the lives of students. Thriving schools are financially secure, nurture the cultural and intellectual capital of our future, and support a society that values the public service sector.

Who we are: a non-profit educator wellness organization started by teachers. We work toward holistic education reform.

Who we serve: everyone at school—teachers, administrators, and students.

What we offer: professional development, one-on-one mentoring, and research-based analytic course correction.  We create sustainable whole learning communities.


When we recognize our own strengths and honor those in others, we can create a network/community of educators who can help one another rather than depleting our own resources struggling to succeed on our own.

(The Teaching Well) was inspiring. The facilitators come from a background of teaching and they have a great deal of experience, understanding, respect, and compassion for the work. I really admire the use of mindfulness and meditation. I enjoyed learning about my way of teaching that comes naturally to me. The encouragement of great understanding of myself helps my energy to flow more evenly and more sustainably. Thank you!

(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 gave me practical tools I practiced in the workshop and 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!
