Reimagining “teacher development”

Let's face it: working in the field of education is challenging, even for the most passionate and dedicated professionals.

After surveying over 7,000 teachers, we discovered exactly what it is that teachers need. We’ve identified these challenge points and created mini-lessons to help you be the best at what you do!

We are not here to add to your already full plate, we are here to serve YOU, and your socio-emotional needs, equipping you with the tools and resources necessary to create a more well balanced, healthy professional.

If you are an administrator looking to create meaningful impact and real change for your staff — click here.

Within the first 5 minutes I was hooked! This is exactly what teachers need right now!! I’ve been in education for 21 years and seeing something like this for educators is refreshing and exciting! I cannot wait to dive in and fill my bucket.

7

What is your Definition of Success?

Teaching without a definition of success from year leaves you vulnerable to comparison, feelings of defeat, and lack of confidence. Learn why having a personal definition of success matters and exactly how to create one for yourself.

8

Creating Your Definition of Success

The first step in creating a definition of success for yourself is finetuning your criteria. In this lesson, Andrea helps you figure out your success criteria and explains how this list can inform your definition of success.

9

Avoid the Comparison Trap

Why create your own definition for success? Think of success like a measurement stick: whether or not you've had a successful year is going to be determined by where you fall on that measurement. Hear from Andrea as she re-emphasizes the importance of defining success by your terms, not someone else's.

10

Redefining Success

Andrea shares some examples of definitions you may come with and, more importantly, some questions that will help you redefine your idea of success each school year.

11

Introduction to Balance

In the past few years, the line between work and home have become completely blurred. Now it's time to redefine that line and restore your sense of balance. Learn some useful tips from Andrea to help you bring that balance back for good.

12

Balance is a Myth

Work/life balance comes down to prioritizing what matters. Follow along as Andrea busts the myth of balance and re-establishes what it means to draw your line in the sand.

Introduction to Energy

Learn about empowering and disempowering energies, as well as some tips to help you bring an empowering energy to your students.

17

Generating the Right Energy

Energy is contagious: whatever energy level you bring into your classroom is going to directly impact the energy of your students, and vice versa. In this lesson, Andrea shares why intentional energy setting is so important for the health of your class environment.

18

Energy is a Gift

Just like your mindset, your energy is something that you have the power to control. In this lesson, hear from Andrea as she explains transfers of energy and how you can share your empowering energy with the people around you each day.

19

Lead By Example

When it comes to being an energy leader, you have a choice: you can either poke holes in other people's buckets or you can fill them up.

20

The Energy Tide

They say "the tide raises all ships," but what about your energy tide? How can that wave wash over not just your classroom, but your school as a whole? Discover how to come into work with a full energy bucket and protect your supply throughout the day.

21

26

Introduction to Attitude

Learn why attitude matters, the difference between attitude and mindset, and how your attitude can make or break your students' learning experience.

27

The Difference Maker

Andrea encourages you to think of your attitude as a valve that can either limit or increase the experience of your students and stresses the importance of flipping the switch from a "have to" mentality to a "get to" mentality.

28

The Compound Effect

Our attitude not only shapes the experience our students have, but it also shapes the experience we have as teachers on a daily basis. Hear from Andrea as she addresses how a simple attitude adjustment can adjust our day to day experiences as teachers, and how attitude plays a major role in school climate.

29

Your Leadership is as Good as Your Attitude

Great leadership starts with a great attitude. Get ready to break down how your attitude impacts your ability to lead effectively, and ask yourself "What type of attitude am I going to choose to lead with?"

33

Refilling Your Bucket

Teachers give 110% of themselves to their jobs without getting a lot back, which is why it's important to prioritize filling up your own bucket from time to time. Learn the importance of putting yourself first and why you have to take the initiative to prevent burnout.

34

The Contribution Economy

John Maxwell's Law of Contribution states that "you cannot give what you do not have." Learn about navigating the contribution economy as a teacher and how to both avoid and overcome states of burnout.

35

Student Application for Burnout

Student burnout is just as real as teacher burnout, and it's vital that we help students learn how to reset as well. Discover some ways to create small opportunities for breaks throughout the day for your students.

36

Introduction to Growth

Being a teacher means that you're always developing and redeveloping your skills - however, it's a two-sided process. Learn the difference between personal and professional development and why working on both of these aspects is crucial to your growth as an educator.

37

Showing Up for Yourself

In order to be the best you can be for your students, you can't just show up for them - you also need to show up for yourself. This lesson is all about centering personal growth in your career development.

Introduction to Emotional Intelligence

Do you ever feel like you're on an emotional rollercoaster? This push and pull comes down to one crucial element: your emotional intelligence. Learn all about EQ and how to manage it inside the classroom and beyond.

47

Responding vs. Reacting

Follow along as Andrea explains how you can manage your emotional intelligence by taking the time to reflect and respond carefully to someone rather than reacting with your emotions first.

48

54

The Power of Letting Go

Andrea shares the power of letting go of whatever it is you're holding onto, for the betterment of yourself and your students.

55

Leadership is About Letting Go

Letting go is about more than just alleviating personal stressors - it's about giving yourself the room to be an incredible leader in your school and in your community as a whole. Learn what it means to be a leader who lets go and shares some questions that you can ask yourself to decide which issues are really worth fighting for.

56

Student Application for Letting Go

Teaching your students about letting go comes down to one simple mentality: if this isn't going to matter to you in 5 years, don't give it 5 minutes. Watch as Andrea weaves this philosophy into some incredibly useful classroom activities that will help your students let go of the things that are out of their control.

57

BONUS: Break Away from the "Do It All" Mentality

Being a teacher during this time of our lives has changed me forever. Knowing that my students need me more than ever. The Well is a blessing to educators and teachers alike.

Raquel, California
Fifth Grade Teacher

The Well is a great personal development program that has made me stop and self examine what I really need to be a better teacher. It has shown me that looking at my personal needs can really help in a big way in my classroom.

Stacy, California
First Grade Teacher

Speaking as an educator who relies on post-it notes, we all need reminders. Andrea Gebhardt, and The Well, gently remind you to take care of yourself. The Well helps you connect deeper with yourself, and your boundaries, as well as helping you get back your passion for education. I am thrilled that this resource is available! A teacher wellness focused platform is very much needed and long overdue.
