Educators Thriving seeks to support educators to achieve well-being.
We believe that the well-being of educators is a prerequisite to achieving the results with students that each of us desires. Through our program, participants learn concrete strategies to help them avoid and manage most common pitfalls of the educator experience: being overwhelmed, personal neglect, struggling with a fixed mindset, unexpected challenges, and isolation.
Over the past two years, we’ve facilitated the program with teachers in Boston Public Schools and Stockton Unified School District. Participants reported statistically significant declines in burnout, depression, and anxiety.

Who is it for?
Our program is created for those who are on the front lines of this work: teachers and administrators.
Participants are people who are eager to learn about and apply research-based strategies to achieving well-being.
How does it work?
The core of our program consists of twelve research-based online sessions.
Participants engage in each of the sessions over the course of 9 months with a small group of peers via our custom-built web platform.
Sessions enable reflection, discussion, and interaction with the content. Participants integrate the strategies they learn about into their daily lives alongside their peers and a Teaching Fellow who provides individualized support and feedback.
Those who successfully complete the program have the opportunity to earn units that they can apply to salary advancement.
