Talk to me about:
-Teacher retention and burnout prevention: The pandemic of stress and burnout is at an all time high, with one in three educators currently considering leaving the profession and $7.3 billion dollars spent every year on teacher turnover in the US alone. If we are to make transformational change, we must discuss the reality of our education system today and the importance of supporting educators’ wellbeing.
-Wellbeing research and why it matters: Our years of research and program implementation as a revolutionary global community has helped us to better understand what a vision for teachers’ emotional wellbeing truly looks like based on the evidence-based research of Dr. Carol Ryff and the Ryff Scale of Wellbeing
-Meaningful ways to integrate and implement strategies immediately: So now what? In our one-on-one Mentors meetings, we will arrive at actionable next steps to implement a multi-tiered system of support for educators’ social-emotional well-being.
