As an educator of 10+ years, I have seen thousands of students struggle with mental health issues. I have seen dozens of educators struggle with mental health issues. I have seen parents at a loss of what to do, students shut down, and educators overwork themselves when they should be practicing self care. My teachings allow for a work/self care lifestyle and a strong support system for all of us.
