Teacher misery and burnout are accepted as inevitable.

We reject that.

Educators Thriving seeks to support educators to thrive as professionals and people.


Educators Thriving Program

Educators Thriving is a research-based personal development program to help educators achieve well-being.


Through the program, participants learn concrete strategies to help them avoid and manage the most common pitfalls of the educator experience: being overwhelmed, personal neglect, struggling with a fixed mindset, unexpected challenges, and isolation. 


Our Team

Educators Thriving was developed by teachers and researchers to change the way school systems support those on the front lines of this work.
