Joyful Leadership



Prevent and deter chronic stress and burnout with one of our professional development models designed to help educators lead happier, healthier, more meaningful  personal and professional lives! 
there has been much conversation about student wellness and the stress, anxiety and trauma that students are experiencing due to the pandemic; we must expand the conversation to include the toll on educators. Burnout can be remedied through a comprehensive organizational program such as Joyful Educator Lab. By addressing burnout, you can increase personal wellness, and improve life satisfaction and quality of work.

Your Joy Awaits

I haven’t seen a student, in person, since March 6 of last school year.  I’m on zoom, each day of the week, and talk to black name boxes.  Bottom line - I miss students.  Like many educators, the demands of distance learning coupled with the isolation from colleagues has been challenging – one might even say - joyless.

Crisis of Calm

Are you or someone you know experiencing a crisis of calm? Do you feel like you are in the cycle of reactivity where everything is elevated and magnified? What is the biggest gift you can give yourself right now? Calm.
