Mission: To improve teacher daily experience in the classroom by helping them Think Well, Eat Well, Move Well and Be Well.
Vision: Every teacher deserves a supportive school district. We believe in teachers and want to help rekindle their passion to teach and be their best selves at work & home through Mindful Wellness.
As a former teacher, I bring a combined expertise of 17 years as a middle school teacher, 11 years leading at-risk programs, and 29 years as a corporate fitness/wellness professional. Mindful Wellness offers life-changing solutions to the plague of chronic stress. Teachers give so much of themselves and when they are overwhelmed, exhausted and burned out, the district suffers – with higher insurance premiums, increased illness, chronic pain, doctor visits and increased turnover. It is my passion to support teachers, advocating to reduce their stress and improve their mindset so they can perform and reignite their passion for teaching.
Focusing on the teacher is the foundation to improve a child’s experience and performance in the classroom. It effects workplace culture if teachers are stressed out, overwhelmed and unsupported. We need to be inclusive and take better care of our teachers' mental and physical health.
It is critical to not overlook the importance of a healthy, happy, engaged teacher in the overall formula for success.
After lying the foundation for a mindful workplace, we have follow up curriculum for mindful classrooms for those interested!
