I help goal-oriented teachers and students put the theories of social-emotional learning (SEL),
self-regulation, and self-care into practice
with group and individual coaching and training on results-based mindset & mindfulness practices for holistic health and success.
Educator wellness promotes student success!
The more intentional we are about developing and nourishing our minds, bodies, and spirits,
the greater our overall ability to teach, learn and live.~Nicolette
