We are dedicated to improving the quality of life and overall well-being of every teacher.
Their physical, emotional, and mental health MATTERS.
They deserve to be seen and heard.
They deserve to have the time, tools, and resources for self-care.
They deserve to have a moment to exhale and focus on taking care of themselves.
Why It Matters
There are more than 3.7 million teachers in the U.S. alone.
That number is HUGE, and that means the need is huge as well.
Each day, whether in the classroom or virtually, teachers focus on providing structure and support for our children. Many face substandard conditions and resources, but the expectations placed on them do not change.
Our teachers, now more than ever, are struggling. They are feeling disconnected, and they are overwhelmed with the responsibilities and challenges they are facing.
Yet no matter their own limitations, or what a child’s abilities or limitations may be, they find a way to connect. They pay for supplies and tools out of their own pockets. They spend countless hours on lesson planning and preparation.
We know that the work they do doesn’t stop when they leave the classroom. We know that they need support in areas like personal finances and child care, while still trying to find enough time for themselves.
There hasn’t been a resource, exclusively for teachers, that offers support for the long term - no matter where they teach, what grade they teach, or how long they have been teaching.
The Teacher’s Resource was created solely to focus on the person behind the teacher.
If teachers knew they could go to one place to find reliable and consistent support as well as community, it would change their lives.
Help us put the spotlight on them and let them know they are seen and heard!

We Need Your Support
Sonya Battle founded The Teacher’s Resource in August of 2020 out of a desire to provide much-needed support and self-care for teachers at a level that has not existed before.
Her greatest joy in life has always come from helping others. By starting The Teacher’s Resource, she is now able to take action and be a part of the change. Her focus is on helping teachers not only to succeed - but to thrive.
Her history teacher once told her that she had the ability, power, love, and influence to make an impact on the lives of others. She has held onto that message and it encourages her to keep moving forward. Sonya knows that her true purpose is to not only make a difference, but to be the difference.
Michelle has been a part of The Teacher’s Resource team since the very beginning. After meeting Sonya, she was immediately inspired by her vision, and wanted to help teachers have access to the resources they need.
Growing up, Michelle always had a connection with teaching. She spent her high school and college years working with children and teaching art and science.
Michelle uses her skills as a writer and creator to share the mission of The Teacher’s Resource with others as well as to help create the tools and resources teachers will need to succeed.
