schools can prioritize wellness

 DCʼs teacher turnover is highest in  U.S. at 25% (natʼl average is 16%) so we must adapt new strategies and teach team-care solutions. 

Nonprofit Wellness trainings and tools, which are customized for adults in schools, are helpful in stress management and retention.

Stronger relationships, better systems and skills are needed to fix public schools' notorious teacher burnout problem (including mid-year departures). 

Join us in using WEllness (emphasis on "WE") as a tool to build culture at schools.
