Unlocking SEL
Mindful Leaders


Mindful Leaders Network

Are you a stressed out school leaders, teetering on
the edge of burnout?

I have been where you are.

For me, the impetus to shift my priorities and practice self-care came from a school crisis.  I developed Mindful Leaders Network to teach you what I have learned so you don't have to have a crisis to make life affirming shifts.
