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 experience and evidence-based healing practices in mental health and emotional resilience for sustainable well-being in the midst of a global pandemic and our collective mission of social justice in our schools.

We teach who we are. (Parker Palmer)

 

Personally, educators and educational caregivers deserve to be supported in their 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 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. 

Training Overview

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).

Module Components

Each 30 minute training module engages the intellect, calms the mind, and restores balance to the body.

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.

OUTCOMES
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.
