August Newsletter:
Thanks to Wanderlust, Interview with Jenny Grant Rankin, and Summer Reading!

We had a blast presenting at Wanderlust Squaw Valley! Founder Kelly Knoche gave an engaging and innovative presentation at The Speakeasy to a full crowd. Everyone left with information and tools to maintain health and well-being in service. And we left with some invitations to collaborate with more schools! There was so much fun, yoga, healthy treats, and dancing for the whole team. Thanks, Wanderlust. 

We're excited to publish a multi-part interview between Kelly and Jenny Grant Rankin, PhD. We explore her journey from teaching to writing, the best ways for teachers to leverage resources, how she addresses burnout, and how her work aligns with The Teaching Well. Jenny is the author of First Aid for Teacher Burnout: How You Can Find Peace and SuccessEngaging & Challenging Gifted Students, and How to Make Data Work: A Guide for Educational Leaders.
