Testimonials

The 2-day experience was so magical and life changing that I am signing up for the 200 hr training session. I'm so inspired by my in-district and out-of-district colleagues who attended and how quickly we all came together as a community. I'm forever changed by the experience. I can't wait to take my experiences and share them with my students, peers, administration and community.

- David, High School Educator

When I signed up for this experience, I only had the intent that this would help my professional life....boy was I pleasantly surprised to see how it transformed my own life. This was the BEST spent 20 hours of my life. I couldn’t stop thinking about the weekend. I was like a kid in a candy store, sharing how beautiful these 2 days were. - Andrea, Elementary School Teacher

The 2-day wellness training really opened my eyes to the importance of self care and investing in myself which in turn will allow me to be a better educator. This program also allowed me to learn new communication and mindfulness skills to use not only in my classroom but in my life. The program left me very inspired to see so many educators ready for change! - John, Middle School Educator

There are so many transformative aspects of the 2-day experience. However, the most powerful for me was how in such a short time, I was moved in a very deep and life changing way. I felt the power of emotions from a community that wants healing for humanity. It was a roller coaster ride of emotions leaving me both energized and calm. Energized by the possibilities for myself on a personal level and as an educator to help my students feel valued and excited about their lives. I am calmer because of the tools that I am able to use- breathing 4 change!! It is truly breathing in renewed hope and positivity and exhaling doubt and negativity. - Kelsey, High School Educator
