TEP Launches Exploration of Well-Being for Teachers

TEP staff and faculty organized workshops presented by teacher candidates for self-realization and self-nurturing for educators.

“Those of us who work with TEP students recognized that they were under a significant amount of stress so we wanted to do something to support their well-being. It’s amazing how complex the life of the classroom is,” observes McMullin. “That’s why it baffles me that we hardly pay attention to teachers’ well-being in our profession.”
