November Monthly Newsletter

                  The holidays are around the corner: quick wellness tips!

November means post-Halloween candy comas, students struggling to stay focused before the holidays and teachers on the EDGE. Want to make your health a priority in the next few weeks? Check out two quick tips for resilience this month. Making two changes can change everything!

1. Try a new "pick-up food" and avoid candy. and  In our Pick Up, Sustain and Ground PD, we give examples of foods that can support different types of energy needs during the day. Need a quick pick up? Eat whole fruit, green juice, celery and peanut butter or a date. All provide easy-to-digest, quick sources of water and sugar!

2. Play music and dance (yes, really) during your free period. Endorphins are powerful stress combatants. And trust us, something about jamming to Drake during your prep time makes you smile. Your students will mirror your joy when they come back into your class.

The Teaching Well is a non-profit teacher wellness organization that believes that the health and well-being of educators make a critical difference in school culture, teacher retention and the lives of students.   Here's more about our workour team, how to partner with us in support, or how to bring us to your school site.


Saturday, November 5 from 9am - 1pm: Last call for our Oakland Wellness Workshop at Westlake Middle School this If you've been to one of our PDs before, come for FREE if you bring a colleague who's new to us! TICKETS HERE.
In September, The Teaching Well was contacted by UPROXX Reports, who wanted to feature our passionate movement towards teacher sustainability in one of their feature articles. Check out their story on our work  HERE.
Our First LA Weekend Wellness Workshop October 15/16 was a powerful reminder of why we do the work we do - teachers remembering their value and prioritizing it!
