Teacher Wellness

You know this. It makes a difference when you feel good about yourself and your job, when you have that class that just clicks, and when you feel that your school leaders support you and care about you personally.

Your wellness is linked to stability in schools, how effectively you can teach, and your students’ achievement.

Teacher’s emotions and stress levels have been found to influence both students and other teachers. Teacher wellness is the foundation on which healthy school environment can flourish. Luckily, The Daily Mile is a free, simple solution that can improve your mental, emotional, and physical health and wellbeing – and that of your students, too.

Teaching under normal circumstances can be difficult.

But now, you are creating history by doing something that has never been done before—teaching during the coronavirus pandemic. You are adapting to a new life, grieving the loss of normal, dealing with school/class closures, developing new in-school and distance learning models, adhering to mask requirements, making accommodations for social distancing rules, taking temperatures, filling out paperwork, dealing with quarantine regulations, and deep cleaning the classroom.

We know you are exhausted, overworked, feel undervalued, and are responsible for dozens of tiny human beings for seven hours a day, 180 days a year.

How you spend time
