💫 Well Ed is a wellbeing ecosystem and Community of Practice building a one-stop-shop of science-backed resources, connection and Q&A with guest experts, mentorship, and ongoing learning and growth opportunities to help shift from what's wrong to what's possible. If you work in or with school communities, value wellbeing, and would benefit from an uplifting circle of support, Well Ed's one-of-a-kind community is for you! 💫
It's not! Ditch the isolation, overwhelm, and naysayers. Join a crew of hope-mongers committed to taking action.
You're not alone! Take this off your already full plate and let's all stop reinventing the wheel.
Let's focus on effective pathways to create meaningful change and lasting impact for yourself, others, and the system.
INVEST IN YOUR WELLBEING.
Despite that gremlin in your mind, you ARE doing enough! You do a LOT to support others in your life and work. We'd love to help take the pressure off where we can. You Matter. Your Wellbeing Matters.
Access to wellbeing expertise and resources can be costly. You'll have year-round access to peers, experts, learning + done-for-you tools for less than a conference registration or workshop series.
We've done our homework so you don't have to. No more wasting time on rabbit-hole searches for quality wellbeing resources. Find what you need whenever you need it, with 24/7 access.
As former educators and forever wellbeing advocates, we've lived the education system from the inside. The Well Ed Community is the uplifting hub we wish we would've had across all of our roles - classroom teacher, system specialist in mental health, wellbeing champion, researcher, instructor, and community supporter.
we've been there.
Well Ed provides a platform where educators can collaborate and share resources that will directly affect the wellbeing of the school community (teachers, students and their families).
Well Ed provided a safe place to share ideas and collaborate with my colleagues. It gave me reminders and ideas to take care of my personal wellness, but also provided many ideas and lessons to share with my students. I enjoyed the ability to share lesson ideas and discuss how they went with other educators. Well Ed has great potential to impact many teachers and students on their wellness journeys.
Grade 6 Teacher
Well Ed provided me with a community of personal and professional practice that allowed me to learn from others' experiences, reflect on my own, and be held accountable to the work of wellness in my life and in my teaching. Having reminders and prompts allowed me to take a small amount of time each day to intentionally reflect on my wellbeing and many of them were ones I could repurpose for use in my classroom.
Assistant Principal + Teacher
We launched this in the busiest time of year for teachers and the number of personal stories shared about how the Mission of the Week helped staff navigate the difficulty of the end of the year were numerous! One example was a Kindergarten teacher sharing how "Real Time Resilience" reminded her that she has successfully navigated 16 Junes in the past! Instead of letting the wheels fall off, she used evidence of past success and sat down to make a to-do list rather than let her mind continue to spiral ... there were numerous other stories like this for staff!
As the Wellness lead, I was able to see firsthand the impact Well Ed made with staff.

Since Well Ed's content, approaches, offerings, and impact are rooted in the latest research and application of positive psychology, wellbeing science, and effective Communities of Practice - and since wellbeing is in service of learning and the goals of education - fees for Well Ed's offerings should be eligible for professional learning funding.
We recommend contacting your leadership, professional association, organization, or district to advocate for full or partial funding. Feel free to use our About Page and the *coming soon* Why Wellbeing in Education Matters doc in our Library to help communicate the value and impact for schools.
We are always exploring funding opportunities on our end to help offset fees on yours.
AKA, is this just another thing on my to-do list?!
This is a flexible space. As teachers and system leaders ourselves, we've lived the school life and want to make your life EASIER not harder!
That's why Well Ed offers bite-sized, high-impact resources with convenience, enabling you to weave wellbeing and new ideas into your jam-packed, unpredictable days. You are in the driver's seat, deciding when and how you engage, designing your personalized feed, and controlling notifications through email + the app. Your digital wellbeing matters to us, too; the app is there for convenience - but you set the controls, not the algorithm.
Part of joining Well Ed (anytime, and especially as a founding member) means we will work with you until it IS useful. That said, we also provide easy, guilt-free cancellation!
Well Ed's current offerings are the result of pilots and consultations with people just like you. We listen to what you need and take action.
As educators and wellbeing champions, we have often felt isolated and overwhelmed doing this work. Well Ed is intended to relieve that pressure, and support YOUR wellbeing in the process.
No - live events (aside from coaching sessions or by request)will be recorded so you can catch the replay. Don't worry if your schedule doesn't always align with calls - you won't miss a beat!
We know how unpredictable your days can be. That's why we also create asynchronous opportunities, so you can engage at your own pace, at times that work for you.
You can also add events you'd like to attend directly into your calendar for reminders along the way!
It's both/and ... all of it, always!
Research suggests when adults feel good and function optimally, so do the kids in our lives. That said, your wellbeing matters in and of itself - not just for the benefit of student wellbeing or your work!
Well Ed isn't either/or. It's both/and. Offerings and content are designed through the lens that wellbeing is interconnected, and every level generates ripple effects that impact others.
We cover staff wellbeing, student wellbeing, whole-school and system wellbeing, and evolve content with your feedback.
Never doubt that a small group of thoughtful, committed citizens can change the world;
indeed, it's the only thing that ever has.
