I’m Brittany, a mom/bonus-mom of five, a special education teacher, teacher mentor, and self-care strategist. I’m here for teachers like you who need sustainable self-care support that is personalized and simple to implement.
Did you catch my “viral” TikTok video where I shared the ever popular TedTalk clip from Rita Pierson? I’ve been there. I know what it’s like. After a messy divorce and caring for two daughters as a single mom all the while teaching, I was “burning the candle at both ends.” Deep down, I needed to find ways to “fill my cup” so that I was able to give my best to my girls and my students but none of the memes on pinterest or self-care books really fit my lifestyle and my personality.
The solution? I realized self-care was not a one-size fits all mentality. Each of us are different, unique individuals, each experiencing different struggles at various times in our life, just like the students in my classroom. No one should have to spend hours a day researching self-care, finding cute graphics for motivation, or adding more things to the "to do" list.
I had a moment (during a parent meeting) where I realized I had a mission. Using the skills I had learned as an educator and burnout survivor, I could unite teachers online and empower them to prioritize their self-care and mental health so they could get back to feeling more fulfilled in their career and effective in their classroom.
Since that moment, I’ve helped hundreds of teachers make mindful changes to their self-care routine, reduce stress by implementing quick and simple strategies, identify individualized processes that will allow you to regain power, and recognize the signs and symptoms of burnout.
Every educator deserves to fall back in love with teaching, and I love encouraging teachers to prioritize self-care, so they can find their unique method of self-care, ditch the overwhelm, and make an impact one student at a time.
