Hi, I'm Rachel.
I'm a National-Board Certified teacher, artist, arts researcher, mentor for new teachers, and a leader in the field of Art Education. In my work as a coach for teachers, I felt like there were some tools I needed to really support teachers. I felt like I understood instruction well but I didn't know how to support teachers cultivating resilience and build a career that is personally and professionally sustainable while still maintaining passion and commitment to equitable outcomes for all students.
Over the last three years I researched a number of tools teachers and school leaders can use to boost teacher wellbeing. All the tools I mention here are research-based and I have personally tried them. I am so happy to now have this forum to share these tools with other educators and also to learn more from each of you.
Wishing you all the very best,
