The Teacher’s Resource focuses solely on the person behind the teacher. What this means is that we prioritize their total well-being - mentally, physically, and emotionally. We see them for who they are and we understand that they are lacking the tools and resources they need to thrive both in and out of the classroom.
We are working hard to expand our reach to teachers across the country, and to offer programs and resources that will benefit teachers for a lifetime.
Take a look at the programs we currently offer, as well as some exciting things we have coming up in the near future!
What We Are doing now
Each week, through nominations from peers and family members, we choose a Teacher of the Week.
We share how they have influenced the lives of their students and those of others. Anyone can nominate a teacher that has impacted them and tell us why they deserve to be chosen.
From those winners, we choose a Teacher of the Year each Fall. We want to continue to recognize how teachers are contributing to their students, to their schools, and to their communities.

School of the Month
On the first of every month, we recognize one school as our School of the Month. These schools are nominated by parents, staff, family, and community members. We highlight the teachers and staff and the amazing work they do.

One way we recognize teachers that have made a difference in the lives of others is with our self-care backpacks.
Supporters of teachers are able to request a backpack to be sent to a teacher of their choice.
Every backpack is filled with amazing self-care items worth more than $250.
The backpacks and the items within them are thanks to monetary and product donations from generous individuals, organizations, and businesses.
Supporters pay just a fraction of the cost of the bag and the items to have it shipped to a teacher.
Every month, we go live on Facebook with a special guest who helps our teachers focus on an aspect of their self-care
We are traveling virtually state to state to meet with teachers and to hear their stories.
Each stop has special guests, giveaways, and plenty of surprises!
The goals of the tour are:
- To connect with teachers across the country and hear their voices
- To provide tools and resources to support their self-care
- To help find solutions to the problems they are facing in and out of the classroom
What Is Upcoming
We are currently developing a Resource page on our website that includes a list of licensed professionals and businesses that will offer discounted services and products for our teachers.
A six-week certified accreditation program to help prepare teachers for their first year of teaching
Online self-care and total well-being courses exclusively for teachers
A program just for retired teachers
This one-of-a-kind journal will not be your traditional journal or planner.
It will be all about your INSIDE care - focused on balancing your mind, body, and soul.
It will offer places for notes, daily gratitude, mind maps, goal tracking, reflection, and plenty of open space to journal, doodle, and dream!
This app will allow teachers access to a wide range of licensed and certified professionals, twenty-four hours a day, seven days a week.
They can choose to connect by phone, virtually, or even in person.
The app will offer support for their total well-being - mentally, physically, and emotionally.
Our Teacher’s Grant Fund will offer financial support and opportunities for our teachers, while our Retired Teachers Fund will offer the same support and opportunities for our retired teachers.
