Whole Teacher Testimonials
“I have been so stressed since the beginning of the school year. I was putting all of my energy into other areas and not taking care of myself. Now, I’m doing more self-care because of this program. I recognized when I’m not eating well and taking care of my own needs everything around me wasn’t working. Since I’ve started, the whole journey has helped me in all areas of my life.”
“I’m so happy to have begun this process! The prompts are short and digestible but extremely meaningful and thought-provoking. I’ve found myself being challenged to think about health and stress management in new ways.”
“I joined the cohort because I needed something that would help me take active steps in self-care and reclaim my life. I’m learning that I have so much more to give others when I’m taking the time to care for myself first. So, I’ve given myself permission to seek out healthy options—and healthy interactions with others. I look forward to getting better and better through this year.”
