Why this community?
As a teacher you hold a pivotal role in our society and for you to thrive doing what you love you need way more support than you currently receive.
We have created this community to give you the support you have been asking for. We want you to feel safe and cared for so you can keep being the amazing super heroes you are! Yes we really believe you are super heroes.
Teaching in South Africa means you face many challenges: having classes of over 40+ children, being threatened physically, constantly trying to meet the needs of children who are vulnerable and live in abusive and violent environments. Caring for children who are depressed, suffering from anxiety, are under overwhelming pressure to perform and achieve at the highest level and more . . . not to mention the paperwork and curriculum pressure.
All of this takes a lot of heart and energy. We know teaching in these environments is not only physically taxing but emotionally draining as well.
Teachers give so much of themselves. We want to support you, especially when you are feeling depleted, unmotivated or exhausted.

We believe . . .
It is fundamental for teachers to have a place to resource. A place where you feel cared for and supported. To talk through and share what has been tough, to be heard and seen. To connect with other teachers to cultivate a space of belonging. To learn new ways of doing things which make your teaching day more ease-filled and to develop skills to meet the needs of the children who are in your circle of influence.
We have created this for YOU!
We want you to feel empowered, alive, excited and appreciated.
Every. Single. Day.
And more importantly we want you to know you have somewhere to resource when you are not.
Yes! We have created all of this for YOU.
Courses - a variety addressing different aspects of emotional and mental wellness in your classroom. This is a combination of online and in-person courses.
Self-Care and Personal Growth Series - Self-Care is an inside job AND it helps to have someone walk next to you. This is an interactive series presented in webinars with personal growth content. It is all about us helping you to “take care of you”.
Fill Your Cup Sessions - You cannot pour from an empty cup. These 30-minute monthly guided support sessions are here to help you feel rejuvenated. They can include mindfulness exercises, meditations, visualisations, breathing work, movement, creativity or a combination thereof.
Listening Groups - These groups offer a space to listen to one another without the need to fix or help or change anything. “Being heard is so close to being loved that for the average person, they are almost indistinguishable.” ― David W. Augsburger, Caring Enough to Hear and Be Heard.
Webinars - These are once-off topics or presented in response to questions you have asked us. Each webinar lasts 90-minutes and the recordings with any supporting materials are available to you.
