A mindful resource hub for teachers
A well of information teachers can turn to for meditations, mindfulness activities, journals and other resources in order to return to center during their day. The Teacher Well is a place where teachers are put first.

Teachers, it’s time. Time to slow down and reclaim our sense of inner peace and happiness. It’s time to put ourselves first, because we know we are of no use to ourselves, our students, or anyone else if the well’s run dry.
The added responsibilities asked of teachers right now highlights the crucial need for time specifically devoted to self-care and teacher reflection. But how? Fitting in self care during the work day seems like a far-reaching dream. And with everything else going on in the world right now, a teacher’s sense of happiness in the classroom doesn’t seem like a necessity.
Currently, we are faced with seemingly impossible tasks. And are asked to do it with a smile on our face and inadequate prep time. But we do it anyway, because we were born to teach and inspire and we love the students we work with. So let’s teach and inspire from a place of true enthusiasm and not forced smiles from being exhausted. Let’s show our students what it means to be a person who teaches from the heart. It’s time to make a commitment to teacher health and wellness and replenish the well.
How does The Teacher Well help?
Our custom created content, designed to be completed in five minutes or less, 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. 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 left feeling anxious, unfulfilled and unhappy soon after in both my personal and work life.
I knew I wasn’t performing at my highest level because I wasn’t nourishing myself at the deepest level.
As a teacher and a mother to two young children, I had to create a habit that would be both feasible and impactful. I needed a dedicated time to reconnect with myself, check-in, and re-center during my work day. Five minutes was all I could afford during the busy school day, but after committing to this practice, it not only became easier to put myself first, I was also more balanced, happy, and prepared for what life had gifted me that day. It was my first step in combatting what I felt was a systemic problem-teacher burnout due to unrealistic expectations of what one person can effectively accomplish within an 8 hour school day.
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 during their day. You are worth it!
