Teacher Wellness: From Disengaged to Fulfilled
Facebook Page: @leadershipinnovationanddivergentteaching
Mandy spends much of her time consulting with school districts and post-secondary institutions in the effective use of technology to support great teaching, mental health support for educators, and how to create organizational change in education. Her first book, The Fire Within: Lessons from defeat that have ignited a passion for learning, discusses mental health awareness for teachers. Her second book, Divergent EDU, is based on an organizational structure she developed to support teachers in innovative and divergent thinking. Her third book, based on educator engagement and mental health, is titled Reignite the Flames which has a companion guide/workbook titled The Educator’s Matchbook.
Mandy is passionate about learning and her profession in general, but her two favorite components of her position are being able to provide professional learning opportunities and present/keynote conferences. She believes that by providing these opportunities to teachers, she is in turn able to reach many more students and ultimately affect their learning experiences.
At home you’ll usually find Mandy talking to her family or spending copious amounts of time telling her dog she’s pretty. She loves coffee and has a hard time being friends with people who don’t. Mostly, she devotes her life to finding what makes her happy … and seeing others happy fills her cup.
