Winter break was too short and summer too far away.
With the unreasonable pressures of adjusting to life during and now as the pandemic eases, the entire year is feeling like that hard time for too many of us.
If you are finding it hard to get up in the morning, hard to get to sleep at night, hard to feel enthusiasm, and hard to have patience with your students, chances are you are experiencing the depletion and burnout that is all too common among educators in the middle of the coronavirus pandemic.
Know that you are not alone.
If you’re like many teachers I work with, maybe you’ve tried some of these different ways to perk yourself up...
But none of these efforts are succeeding in banishing your doldrums, lifting your spirits or reconnecting you with your own vital energy, your own love for teaching, or your own optimism about life.
These are hard times.
...and you could use support from someone who already understands the pressures of teaching, who has worked with hundreds of teachers, and who has been practicing these tools for 40 years...
I’ve walked into Professional Development sessions where everyone is utterly burned out and watched those same teachers walk out an hour later with light in their eyes and smiles on their faces.
I’ve worked for the last five years, perfecting a set of keys that you can use every day to unlock your vitality, refresh your sagging spirits, and even weave into your classroom so you (and your students) get a breather during the day, just when you need one.
What makes all the difference is having these three keys at your fingertips:
These 3 keys will unlock the revitalization that is not out of reach, even if you feel it is. That revitalization is just, momentarily, hidden from view
We can change that. That’s why I’ve created this 5-session program Rapid Revitalization for Teachers.
Just because it feels that way right now, doesn’t mean it can't change. There are transformative practices and perspectives that can shift your experience right now, which is when you need it. You need the support and revitalization now, to get through this next semester.
This can’t wait until everything is perfect.
You need that uplift:
Children are in school now. You are teaching now. You are tired now.
That’s why I designed this live, supportive 5-session series that you’ll be able to tune in to every day so you don’t have to go it alone. So you can be guided through restorative practices that will bring you ease right now. And, you’ll walk away with easy to use reminders and resources so you can continue to nourish yourself, your family, and your classroom again.
Though the flames may seem to be burning low, in Rapid Revitalization, my Self-Care MasterClass for Educators, I’ll work with you. Together we’ll blow on those embers and rekindle that fire.
With your authentic passion renewed, you can do more than just survive these times, you can rise.
When you do, you’ll experience ease even in the midst of pressure.
Your family and friends will benefit from your strength.Your students will grow under your care and example.
If you have been feeling like you aren’t sure how you’ll make it through the end of this school year, there couldn’t be a better moment to enroll in the Rapid Revitalization, Self-Care MasterClass for Educators.
No matter how busy you are, you matter.
Your health, well-being, revitalization, and yes, your joy matters.
Getting good guidance and revitalizing yourself matters.
So you can revitalize your body, mind, and spirit. (Without adding a ton of extra “to do” activities to your day.)
That passion brought you into education will nourish you every day when it is re-kindled.
When you trust that who you are is more than enough and end that agonizing pressure to work endlessly and never feel like you are doing enough.
That activate your wellbeing and keep you auto-replenishing. Yes, you can renew throughout the workday, even during the most hectic ones.
Even in the midst of the pandemic, you can create a rewarding experience. Because your wellbeing can’t wait. You can learn to draw boundaries that keep you happy, well, and strong.
3 Keys to help you turn down the volume and change the channel. Learn to shift from a focus on worry to a focus on that which restores.
Imagine Friday arriving and thinking, “I didn’t know I could be this relaxed during such a busy week!” In this session, you’ll work with tools that can make your day one you can feel good about, proud of, and restored by.
We often stop at visualizing what’s possible, without seeing the internal barriers that keep us from making that shift our own. In this session, you’ll learn how to dismantle cultural and personal barriers to your own well-being.
Even Superbowl MVPs have good coaches to get them there. We all need encouragment and training from people who can share their secrets -- the short cuts they’ve learned over the decades. In this session, get all your Self-Care questions answered.
Set everything aside for 90 minutes and enjoy this inner spa day. Relax with a massage for the mind, a cooling pack for your emotions, and calming practices for your body.
In working with hundreds of teachers and thousands of students, Amy’s organization Inner Strength Education has become the gold standard in school mindfulness programs.

"My staff couldn't stop raving about how well the class went! This has been so important for our school community!"
J.L., High School Principal
"This is exactly what I needed! This changed a week from hell into practices I'm going to make habits! Thank you."
R.L., Teacher, Oakland, CA
"Thank you so much for leading our staff through mindfulness practices. We appreciated and enjoyed the time to relax, rejuvenate, and be with themselves and each other in ways we don't usually have time to do. I look forward to our continued work together!"
A.D. High School Principal
"Your mindfulness course is genuinely unique, academically rigorous, mind/soul/mind stretching, and life-changing! From the bottom of my heart,"THANK YOU"! You've made my day and uplifted my spirits!"
H.S., Art Teacher
"Our training was excellent. Everyone left the training empowered to weave simple, yet effective strategies into daily life. Even those in our organization who were skeptical or hesitant at first ended the day feeling refreshed."
C.W. Chief Program Officer, ArtistYear
"It was truly a pleasure to have Amy provide a session for our team. She helped us to address the feelings of being overwhelmed and stressed and also assisted us with identifying the effects of secondary trauma. Since our training, our team has shared techniques with our youth, as well as employed self-care techniques into the work place."
K.S. VP of Programs, Philadelphia Education Fund
"Amy reminded us that we, the adults, are important, too. To better serve our students and to better teach, we need to take care of ourselves. We were able to immediately implement every self-care strategy she presented, and our teachers and staff chose to implement them on their own throughout the school year. We started a new approach to living because we realized the difference within ourselves. Who wouldn't rather live than simply exist?!"
N.H., Executive Director, Charter High School
"Educators devote much of their time and effort to the wellbeing of their students; thus, often forgetting to consider their own needs. You introduced the concept of mindfulness, and took us on a journey through meditation exercises that helped us become enlightened to our present state of mind. These tools helped us become aware of our emotions and stressors, and allowed us to reflect on how they may influence our decisions."
J.D. Health & PE Teacher, High School
