Healing the education system, one school at a time
Healing Schools Project coaches K-12 schools, school districts and charter networks to integrate anti-racist practices that are tailored and culturally relevant, including healing circles, trainings, and strategic planning. 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 programs focus on recognizing the signs of stress in teachers so that appropriate measures can be taken to ensure their wellbeing. 78% of teachers reported that if the school did more work like this, they would be more willing to stay.
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.
