Educator Wellness training provides adults—including teachers, support staff, and leaders—strategies for prioritizing and supporting wellness individually and with peers.
Many educators across the nation are dealing with high levels of anxiety, stress, fear, and worry, and leaders are increasingly navigating issues of low teacher retention and recruitment. This workshop training series is intended to provide strategies and knowledge around the ways in which individuals can prioritize wellness, and how district and school systems can better support these efforts.
