What Drives Us
StaffRoom Wellness empowers educators to feel more of a sense of agency over their careers and lives so they can have the impact they want in their communities. We are here to support and enrich the lives of those who serve as guardians of the children who will one day inherit the world.
Educators make up a critical part of our society’s backbone. Today, they face more pressure than ever before.
StaffRoom Wellness addresses these challenges by offering educators a new narrative that challenges conventional ideas of the educator as an endless supply of energy and self-sacrifice. Educators are generous, dynamic and creative. They also have their own needs to be met in order to be able to feel fulfilled. Our contributors are all trained educators or have worked extensively with educators and offer powerful tools for greater self-connection, rejuvenation and optimism.
When educators are healthy, happy and supported, these benefits will transfer into the lives of our children and the greater community.
