The Teacher’s Resource focuses solely on the person behind the teacher. What this means is that we prioritize their total well-being – mentally, physically, and emotionally. We see them for who they are and we understand that they are lacking the tools and resources they need to thrive both in and out of the classroom.
We are working hard to expand our reach to teachers across the country, and to offer programs and resources that will benefit teachers for a lifetime.
Take a look at the programs we currently offer, as well as some exciting things we have coming up in the near future!
Each week, through nominations from peers and family members, we choose a Teacher of the Week.
We share how they have influenced the lives of their students and those of others. Anyone can nominate a teacher that has impacted them and tell us why they deserve to be chosen.
From those winners, we choose a Teacher of the Year each Fall. We want to continue to recognize how teachers are contributing to their students, to their schools, and to their communities.
School of The Month
On the first of every month, we recognize one school as our School of the Month. These schools are nominated by parents, staff, family, and community members. We highlight the teachers and staff and the amazing work they do.
One way we recognize teachers that have made a difference in the lives of others is with our self-care backpacks.
Supporters of teachers are able to request a backpack to be sent to a teacher of their choice.
Every backpack is filled with amazing self-care items worth more than $250.
The backpacks and the items within them are thanks to monetary and product donations from generous individuals, organizations, and businesses.
Supporters pay just a fraction of the cost of the bag and the items to have it shipped to a teacher.
Live Life Sessions for Teachers
Every month we go live on Facebook with a special guest who helps our teachers focus on an aspect of their self-care.
The Teacher’s Townhall Tour
We are traveling virtually state to state to meet with teachers and hear their stories. Each stop has special guests, giveaways, and plenty of surprises.
We are currently developing a Resource page on our website that will include a list of licensed professionals and businesses that will offer discounted services and products for our teachers.
Bloom - Our Self Care and Wellness Platform for teachers (locally and nationally)
This one-of-a-kind journal will not be your traditional journal or planner. Blloom is a total-care program for teachers.
It will be all about your INSIDE care – focused on balancing your mind, body, and soul.
It will offer places for notes, daily gratitude, mind maps, goal tracking, reflection, and plenty of open space to journal, doodle, and dream!
This app will allow teachers access to a wide range of licensed and certified professionals, twenty-four hours a day, seven days a week.
They can choose to connect by phone, virtually, or even in person.
The app will offer support for their total well-being – mentally, physically, and emotionally.
Live Life Sessions for Teachers
Every month we go live on Facebook, with special guest and/or a licensed professional, who help our teachers with their overall well-being and self-care.
We cover topics like:
1. Help, I’m overwhelmed!
2. How to recognize and prevent burn-out.
3. Scheduling ME for ME!
4. What to do about exhaustion?
Teachers, let us know what topic you would like covered?

Teachers deserve access to a variety of programs and tools that will help them both personally and professionally. They deserve to be recognized for their hard work and have the support they need not only during the school year, but year round.
The Teacher’s Resource offers all of this and more. From our self-care backpacks and giveaways, to recognizing amazing teachers as well as schools, to promoting self-care and the opportunity to build a strong community.
We are working hard to offer teachers an organization that they can call their own. Teachers will know they can count on us to provide what they need both in and out of the classroom.
Sonya Battle founded The Teacher’s Resource in August of 2020 out of a desire to provide much-needed support and self-care for teachers at a level that has not existed before.
