Investing in the personhood and holistic mental, social and emotional, and spiritual well-being of your educators is an investment in their professional capital.
Present TeacherTM professional development is strategically aligned with the Five C's of professional capital (Hargreaves & Fullen, Professional Capital, 2012)

Present TeacherTM is an evidence-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.
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.

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...
