In May 2015, The Educator’s Room publicly launched the Teacher Self- Care Conference in an effort to undercut the devastating bi-effects of stress on teachers. Determined to help teachers manage the stress and unrelenting responsibilities of what it means to be a teacher, The Teacher Self-Care Conference was launched.
Our mission is one that is simple, yet straightforward for so many teachers: To give teachers space where their mental health was addressed through real strategies. Through our annual conference held in Atlanta or our one-day institutes across the country, we are determined to give a space for honest dialogue with teachers about how to improve our teacher’s mental health.
The goal for The Teacher Self-Care Conference is to engage in honest dialogue about all topics involved in the discussion of the mental health of teachers. At times, these conversations may be difficult, but they are essential in truly supporting not only teachers but students and caregivers.
In the last three years, we have had three annual conferences and 3 one-day institutes with over 2,000 educators impacted by our events.
In 2019, The Teacher Self-Care Conference looks forward to producing events focused on teacher self-care debuting our Teacher Self-Care Podcast and creating content that teachers want to read. During this year, we may laugh, argue, and cry together- but know that we are partners in education.
