The Present Teacher Restoration ProjectTM
is a self-paced, online adult Social and Emotional Learning (SEL) and healing professional development program that focuses on providing our educators and educational caregivers (all staff members working in educational settings) with experiential and evidence-based healing practices in mental health and emotional resilience for sustainable well-being in work in the school setting.
We teach who we are. (Parker Palmer)
We believe that educators and educational caregivers deserve to be supported in their mental health and social and emotional well-being efforts. Compassion fatigue, burnout, and moral injury are very real "costs of caring" in our profession, and we believe providing educators with opportunities to cultivate and understand their own SEL and well-being needs is critical to creating spaces of care for everyone in our schools.
Our well-being is communal and collective. When the adults in the school setting are supported in their mental healthy and social and emotional wellness, that energy of support extends to students, parents, and the greater school community. Adult social and emotional well-being is an educator's greatest professional asset because adult well-being strengthens relationships with students.
Research confirms that healthy teacher/student relationships correlate to increased student learning and increased teacher effectiveness and job satisfaction.
We believe that staff well-being professional development is as critical as all the other forms and types of professional learning experiences we bring to our in-service educators and educational caregivers.
The 4 hour self-paced, online experiential curriculum supports our educators in the practice of metabolizing current stressors as a source of fuel (vs. depletion) to stoke mental health, emotional resilience, self-efficacy, and self-integrity.
Educators engage a series of 8 (30 minute) modules that are customized to be a slow and low dose of weekly skill and inspiration support for the cultivation of the 5 competencies of adult SEL (self-awareness, self-management, responsible decision making, relationship skills, and social awareness) and the core competencies of educator well-being (self-awareness, emotional resilience, and unconditional positive regard/compassion).
Each 30 minute training module engages the intellect, calms the mind, and restores balance to the body.

Self-Directed Professional Learning
Educators engage a series of (8) self-directed 30 minute modules to build awareness, capacity, and competency in the following areas:
the origins of healing from toxic stress in the educational setting,
strategies to manage personal and collective trauma triggered in teaching,
mind and body practices that restore a teacher's energy and passion to teach,
core foundations of Mindfulness, Well-Being, SEL, and Embodied Equity and learn how all these forces of educator wellness intersect,
mental health strategies rooted in neuropsychology, cognitive behavioral therapy, and mindful awareness to "re-story" stress and uncertainty to bring equilibrium in the mind and nervous system,
how social and emotional learning, joy, and well-being are radical acts of social justice and embodied equity in the classroom setting,
how to create a sustainable SEL and well-being self-care practice plan that can be engaged throughout the entire academic year!
Teachers earn 4 clock hours to submit towards their continuing education units.
This training was a life saver!
Every week I was waiting for it to practice meditation, remind me of my strengths, and manage my energy in the best way possible to survive and find joy in the middle of a pandemic and distance learning- THANK YOU!!

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.
Adult SEL and Mental Resilience
Provide educators and educational caregivers with practices, strategies, and experiences rooted in mindful awareness for the deepening of self-awareness, self-compassion, and emotional resilience so that they can routinely adapt to the stressors of the profession in a functional and flexible way to stave off burnout.
Cultivate the 5 core competencies of Social and Emotional Learning (SEL) to remain calm in chaotic teaching moments, see student (and peer) behavior through the lens of compassion and curiosity, and leverage stress as opportunities to condition critical consciousness.
Teach educators and educational caregivers how to strategically access their inner resources of calm, resilience, healing, and joy for counteracting the onset and manifestation of burnout and compassion fatigue while increasing their innate capacity to actualize happiness, passion, and joy in their calling.
There are (8) 30 minute modules in this 4 hour, online training.
