Ryff Scale of Well-Being Summary and Reflection
"Danna was talking about building support groups for teachers and the importance of self-care,” recalls Moyers. She adds that as educators, “you’re expected to say everything is OK. This gives kids a false image, and it tells them you can’t ever be upset."
"Happy Teacher Revolution is an elegant, upstream solution to address downstream challenges like empathic distress and educator burnout."
"I love the way that HTR actively supports teachers and creates community around the notion that teachers can and deserve to be happy and cared for. I think that the community around HTR helps teachers connect with other educators who have been through burn out or overwhelm. We’ve been a Happy Teacher Revolution school for two years. And it has been remarkable and I think it’s a process in which teachers need the affirmation the connecting to the choices understanding that we can’t pour from an empty cup and teachers need to have that that voice and self care and connection to each other through vulnerability to build the support they need. And so in two years I’ve seen my staff grow as a community and as a connected group of adults around the process and I think that any administrator who wants to move their staff to the next level it’s just a process that must happen… So, it has worked for us."
"I love the way that HTR actively supports teachers and creates community around the notion that teachers can and deserve to be happy and cared for. I think that the community around HTR helps teachers connect with other educators who have been through burn out or overwhelm. Everything is a little more palatable when you can connect with another person over a shared experience. There is also the 12 steps that frame the HTR support group meetings help educators reframe thoughts that are often rooted in toxic narratives about things teachers “should” do or things teachers “signed up for."
"I joined HTR because I love what I do but found myself depleted and miserable. I knew that teaching was my calling and wanted to find ways to keep myself in the classroom.I strongly believe that all educators should be a part of HTR not only to improve their work/life balance, but to also model for others that it is possible to have a happy and effective teacher."
"It’s not about implementing SEL for a year and then dropping it when people change jobs or positions. It’s about creating that capacity that’s going to be long term. And I think within Canada specifically there isn’t anything like Happy Teacher Revolution."
