The Well Teacher supports teacher wellness in the classroom

The Well Teacher Groups

Being a teacher today is not easy. The demands that educators face inside and outside the classroom make it difficult for many teachers to maintain their physical and mental health. Challenging classroom dynamics and supporting family and friends leave educators with little time to focus on their personal wellbeing.

The Well Teacher Groups is a group-based program offered online or in-person that provides educators the time and space to work with their colleagues and a trained wellness facilitator to work on their own wellness.


The Well Teacher Book Club

As you will learn through reading The Well Teacher, we believe there are two ways to become a well teacher: first, by changing the things you can personally control, and second, by creating a well teacher environment and support system. The more open, communicative, and empathetic the environment, the easier it is for everyone to achieve great wellness. Creating a Well Teacher Book Club is a great step toward that end.

Wellness Workshops
Presentations + Keynote Speeches

Humanworks provides dozens of Well Teacher wellness workshops, webinars, presentations, and keynote speeches each year across the country (in-person and virtual) within the whole education sector.
