 Professional Development 

Present TeacherTM is a research-based professional learning program that draws on best practice in mindfulness, neuroscience, adult SEL, and transformative learning theory to cultivate core capacities of educator mental, emotional, and heart/soul well-being. 

OUR MISSION

Provide teachers with strategies, practices, and experiences rooted in mindfulness to deepen self-awareness, equity consciousness, and compassion for self and others so to learn how to adapt to the stressors of a heart-centered profession in a healthy way.

Strategically cultivate habits of mind and humanizing dispositions to remain calm in chaotic teaching moments, see student behavior through the lens of curiosity and compassion, and see the self as capable and confident through the many challenges of teaching. 

Engage teachers in exploring the origins of teacher well-being while learning a research-base process to productively "process problems" that commonly arise in teaching so that teachers can actualize their innate calm, resilience, and emotional agility to stage off burnout and realize happiness, joy, passion, and purpose in their teaching practice. 

OUR WHY

The Cost of Teacher Burnout

The data on the cost and impact of teacher burnout is shocking (but maybe not surprising).

With over 50% of new teachers fleeing the profession within the first 5 years, the profession of teaching is atrophying. We have a teacher retention and a teacher recruitment problem that is not only costing approximately $7.3 billion dollars per year, it has incalculable mental, emotional, and physiological costs for our teachers and our students...

Energized Teachers ~ Elevated Teaching

Research confirms that students thrive emotionally, intellectually, and socially in learning environments that are positive, joyful, and happy! Especially during such stressful times, teachers need to know how to strategically cultivate joy, stoke enthusiasm, and "hardwire happiness." For better or for worse, students can read a teacher's presence even through online learning environments....

A calm and quiet mind is a teacher's greatest pedagogical super-power and well-being asset. Teachers who know how to de-escalate their stress response during moments of stress protect their psychological and physiological well-being, and they maintain a clean and clear perspective of the moment so they keep the learning environment stable and centered....

Teacher burnout not only has high financial costs for districts, there is an exceedingly high relational, emotional, human capital, and learning cost. Research confirms that teachers can learn practical strategies to metabolize the stress inherent in the teaching profession as fuel to "burn in" to teaching, and more importantly, use the stress as an invitation to gain greater equity consciousness, self-awareness, and compassion...

The Burnout Antidote

Burning IN to Teaching 

Research confirms that one of the most insidious forms of teacher burnout out is moral injury.

Teacher Self-Care as

Social Justice Work

"Joy is crucial for social change;

joy is crucial for teaching...

a revolutionary spirit that embraces joy, self-care, and love is moving toward wholeness." (Bettina Love, 2019)

Practices for Teacher Restoration 

We LOVE Restorative Practice practices! They change the culture and dynamic of the entire school setting. Core to a teacher's ability to enact and embody the core pillars of Restorative Practice is his/her/their ability to re-store their own emotional and physical equilibrium during stressful moments, re-story their bias, and create an opportunity of self restoration for their students through attunement and resonance...
