Healing the education system, one school at a time
Healing Schools Project works with K-12 schools, school districts and charter networks predominantly serving students of color, as they tend to have the lowest rates of teacher retention. Uniquely positioned on the East Coast and led by educators of color, we take a three-pronged approach that addresses:
1. Teacher wellbeing
2. School leadership
3. School culture
Our interventions are rooted in research, designed to support teachers of all backgrounds. We tackle challenges that all teachers face, using evidence-based approaches that are tailored and culturally relevant through healing circles, professional development, and strategic planning.
Our Core Specialities
Trained facilitators lead teachers through a peer-support experience consisting of mindfulness practices and restorative conversation. The circles focus on teacher mental health and well-being; leaving them more grounded and connected to their peers, and with a shared vision for a healthier, more supportive school environment.
Leadership deeply impacts the culture and teacher experience within schools. By coaching administrators, we help to build their capacity to reflect on their own leadership, ability to support their staff, and promote improved school culture that works better for teachers and students.
Community Care Professional Development
These interactive schoolwide experiences build collective efficacy – a shared belief in the ability to achieve desired outcomes – among a school’s teachers and leaders. This strengthens their capacity to work together on behalf of their students.
