Everything I learned in the PTRP can be applied to my teaching and well-being immediately!

I can implement the tools I learned with students, and they would be able to replicate them on their own for their own benefit.

I loved going through the PTRP modules!

The PTRP modules affirms everything we feel in a day, week, and year. This training gave me practical wellness tools that helped me with my stress levels, and it also addresses one to be self-reflective and honest in one's teaching practice to bring about more inclusiveness and equity.

I found the series to be calming, centering, and hopeful!

It was really nice to have short modules that I could complete anytime between my on-line teaching sessions and meetings.
