District and school leaders have an opportunity to support student AND teacher wellbeing

Important questions to ask:

If the answer to any of these questions

is “yes,” you're in the right place.

  • Are you concerned about your students' and staff's wellbeing?
  • Do you want to take a proactive approach to address teacher's mental health?
  • Are you seeking a data-driven approach  to support wellbeing across your school or district?
  • Do you want to maintain a pulse on the SEL of your students?
  • Do you want to assess whether your current SEL strategies are succeeding?

“How students react to teacher wellbeing”

Between January 2020 and June 2022, we asked K-12 students about their wellbeing. We collected 1.5 million answers from classrooms across the US.

This is one of the most comprehensive studies done in the last two years on US students’ wellbeing and can be treated as one of the first studies (or data points) to show how students are reacting to teacher wellbeing.

The pressure put on students and teachers today is overwhelming.

The mental health of teachers and students is a shared responsibility and an important component of the whole school and district community. How much are teachers' and students' wellbeing intertwined? To what level can students sense and be impacted by teachers' wellbeing?

How should we monitor the correlations between those two groups and above all, how can we provide a data-driven solution to avoid an emerging crisis?

These types of questions and reflections guided us while analyzing the outcomes of one of the largest studies completed over the last two years on US students’ wellbeing.
