Mentoring Teachers / Self-Care

The Importance of Attending to Physical and Emotional Health

This is one page that we really hope to “build out” this year, with input from mentor and TCs. Self-care is vital in teaching, because professionals devote so much of themselves to the well-being of students they can neglect themselves or even be unaware of stress. We have general website links below, but hope to find high-quality resources about exercise, diet, daily habits, mindfulness, establishing boundaries for work, and other topics.

Let’s test out these tips, different things work for different individuals. Give us feedback on what worked for you to keep you calmer, more focused, more resilient.
