Six Week Online Course

Educator SEL Mindset: Self Care for the Weary Educator

How exhausted are you? It’s hard to quantify isn’t it? As an educator it is so hard to explain your level of exhaustion and what contributes to getting there. The Educator SEL Mindset Coaching Course, is specifically designed to support educators in identifying, acknowledging and addressing the heavy weight you are carrying and the exhaustion that results. 

Do you find that you:

  • Struggle to find balance in your life and know you need more self care?
  • Feel like you’ve lost connection to yourself as you take care of the needs of others first?
  • Feel like you never have enough time to do things for yourself?
  • Struggle with shutting down your brain at night and have difficulty sleeping?
  • Worry about not being able to get it all done and constantly feel behind?
  • Feel a sense of overwhelm that doesn’t seem to go away?
  • Have lost touch with what brought you joy as an educator?

The six week SEL Mindset Coaching Program, is designed to offer direct emotional support to you, educators, while helping you develop the skills to both model and instruct self-care and mindfulness strategies for your students. This is an opportunity to invest in your own health and wellness by creating and maintaining practices that serve to empower a balanced and fulfilling life. By creating a culture of wellness, self care becomes a valued practice within the community and this work begins with you!

Equipping educators to support student’s social and emotional needs begins with taking care of the teacher first. Acknowledging that we cannot pour from an empty cup, nor can we facilitate acquisition of new skills that we do not know or practice ourselves, supporting teachers with professional development that emphasizes use of these skills is critical.

  • Weekly 60 minute group meeting facilitated by a Certified Mindset Coach (There can also be an asynchronous option with video lessons and activities build to complete independently)
  • Weekly stress reduction skill building activities 
  • Custom ebook with additional resources, exercises and materials

Self Care for the Weary Educator

What educators are saying about this course:

“Kelly understands the needs of an educator and gets right into practical ideas to help us help ourselves”


“I was almost dismissive of this course (insert eye roll here), but am so very glad I attended. Thank you! Thank you! Thank you!”


I wish the final session could be longer! I'm so disappointed that class is ending”


“I don't have time for this, and I didn't make all the sessions. However, the weeks I made time to attend, I felt better and stronger as a person afterwards. I expected to sign on to the sessions, turn off my camera and mic, and work on other things while the speaker droned on... imagine my surprise when I couldn't help but consider the practical solutions she offered to manage my stress and engage with the speaker and other participants. Every. Time. Who knew there could be a PD session that engenders hope during a COVID/under-construction/transition-everything-year! Now I just wish it lasted longer than six weeks.”


“It’s nice to set aside the time and discuss strategies with others. I’ve learned so much about balance… even when I thought I was doing all I could, I learned how to be more effective. This has shifted both my thinking and my doing. I am so much better having attended this course! Thank you!”


Finding my ‘Why’ was really helpful and grounding. It left me feeling refreshed.”
