Are you a deeply passionate educator or change maker
ready to cultivate well-being, social emotional learning, and resilience
within yourself, the children you support, and your broader systems,
so you can
expand and sustain your impact
without sacrificing your health, happiness, and wholeness?
You are in the right place!
The need for honoring wholeness is more evident than ever.
Pre-pandemic, 73% of teachers said they “often” find their work stressful, with 58% reporting a decline in mental health from teaching, and more than 1 in 5 teachers leaving within the first 5 years of teaching.
During the pandemic, 27% of teachers said their mental health worsened, and 52% of teachers said it made them likely to leave the profession. Given that it costs around $20,000 to onboard new hires, ignoring educator well-being is a cost we can't afford.
When educational leaders were asked to share emotions most recently experienced during the pandemic, 95% were hard-to-have.
Anxious, overwhelmed, sad, stressed, frustrated, uncertain, and worried were the norm.
Students, especially females and children of color, have reported high levels of stress and pressure too, with home and school challenges not being new, and the negative effects of frequent teacher turnover and stressed out teachers being significant.
The struggles are real, the feelings are valid, and there is a need to hold space for it all.
AND we know there’s tremendous capacity for healing, resilience, and transformational growth.
Opportunities to cultivate compassion, connection, courage, creativity, confidence, and calm.
Hope, optimism, joy, and inner peace.
And significant and sustainable impact.
That's why you're here.
That’s why Constant Love and Learning is here!

I know first hand how frustrating and exhausting it can be to struggle with meeting the needs of all around me, both in and out of the classroom. And I did sacrifice my physical and mental health for far too long, like far too many educators do. I also know how empowering it feels to gain knowledge, learn tools, and develop habits that now allow me to expand the difference I make on kids and colleagues without losing myself in the process. And I love helping other educators reclaim their right to wholeness and happiness.

Stories with Positive Feelings
Rachel, School Psychologist
It’s been such a blessing to hear Katie’s story, to see how she’s applied the knowledge in a gentle way to help guide others along the same path, and to have her share her light with us at the time when we identified a need for some specific plans/ideas. She’s helped me take control back and set boundaries in ways I wasn't aware of before. Katie made not only myself better but has helped my teammates, who feel more like family. Thank you, Katie, for getting me to this space.
Because of Katie, I was able to introduce the Kimochis in a succinct and effective way. Katie’s demonstrations and guidance helped me to share the basics quickly with our entire staff (PreK-8), plus paraprofessionals and administration. I am so grateful for Katie, for giving me the tools to be brave. I truly appreciate her expertise, her style, her mission, and her genuine overall willingness to help! I am so happy that there are people like Katie in our world!!
Dr. Raher is awesome and very supportive. She always makes time to support me and dedicates herself to the well-being of providers like myself. Others have to try her program. It will definitely change how they feel about themselves and how valuable it is to take care of ourselves in order for us to take care of the children in our care.
