The students in special education, they aren’t just high need, they are high reward. And the teachers, they are special too. It takes an innate skill to serve these students and help them rise.

I see the struggle in you every day, in every teacher. Teaching is hard. And we all hide just how much we are struggling.  We are missing connection. We are missing collaboration. We are missing compassion. Especially in these times. 

And the biggest concern is time. There never seems to be enough time in the day to get it all done. There’s not enough time for the emails, lessons, meetings, paperwork, but most of all the students. The guilt we carry about not helping our students enough doesn’t stay in the classroom when we walk out. Because we always carry that in our heart. The Teacher Well helps you feel whole and complete as a teacher. It reminds you that putting yourself first benefits not only you, but also your students and everyone around you. You help others by helping yourself first.

How does The Teacher Well help?

Our custom created content in 5 Minutes to Mindful helps teachers create a culture within their classroom and in their life to step away from the chaos and into a space of calm. The Teacher Well helps you go from reactive and distractive, to intentional and mindful. Five Minutes to Mindful was built with these four core benefits in mind:  Calm. Focus. Uplift. Inspire. Think about how much can change for the good in just 5 minutes.

Here's what I know and believe

we need our teachers well…
in Mind, Body, and Soul

and within the walls of the Teacher Well we grant teachers permission to dedicate time and space for inner growth through self-compassion and self-exploration.

Because I believe teacher well being is the key to longevity and exceptionality, I’m all about creating the most mind-expanding teacher support for my community.

Meet Melanie Rix

Hi! I’m Melanie Rix. I am a special education teacher and after spending over 15 years in this field, experiencing frustration, tears and burnout, I knew there had to be a well way.

The problem – when was I ever going to find the time? Between lesson planning, meetings, emails, and-oh yeah-teaching, I had little to no time to dedicate to myself. My idea of self-care was doing something special, and often expensive, to try and shake off the days and weeks that I neglected myself. Those attempts at self-care had short-lived effects that didn’t even begin to scrape at the surface of the problem. I was still left feeling anxious, unfulfilled and unhappy soon after.

I knew I wasn’t performing at my highest level because I wasn’t nourishing myself at the deepest level.

I created the Teacher Well because I wanted to share the tips and techniques I have learned that can completely transform your day from chaos to calm. It takes as little as 5 minutes -and I really, truly believe everyone can find 5 minutes to dedicate to themselves everyday. You are worth it!
