 Professional Development 

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.

Social Justice

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


The Present Teacher Impact 


Since relationships are foundational to good teaching, anti-racist teaching practices, and effective student learning, teachers must become relationship researchers. Core to being a relationship researcher is exploring one's personal SEL development. 

The Soul of a Resilient Teacher
No More Moral Injury or Secondary Trauma
