The Well Teacher is Officially Launching on January 15, 2019
the humanworks press team is excited to announce that we are officially launching The Well Teacher on January 15, 2019. This project has been nearly two years in the making and it is the most comprehensive teacher wellness-related resource available today.
Teaching is arguably one of the most important and rewarding jobs there is. It is also one of the most demanding and most stressful. Teachers also experience physical health conditions such as MS, chronic pain, and cancer. Add this to challenges associated with workload, class size, composition, and curriculum, as well as emerging trends such as social media, and teachers face greater challenges to their wellness than ever before. This, in turn, affects the education system as a whole. Teachers are leaving the profession, accessing the disability system, calling in sick, or working while feeling burnt out, without comprehensive resources to assist them to improve their wellness and access the right supports.
In publishing The Well Teacher, our goal is to equip and empower all teachers with information, tools, and resources to maintain their own wellness so that they can enjoy long and healthy careers in the classroom.
We hope that you will join us, either virtually by following us on social media or in person (click to RSVP), on January 15, 2019, from 4 p.m. to 8 p.m. PST to not only celebrate this exciting milestone in The Well Teacher community but also to be part of the movement to support well teachers everywhere.
