Welcome to S.A.G.E. Wellness

S.A.G.E. Wellness is a one-of-a-kind educational consulting company dedicated to teacher well-being and self-care.  We combine holistic principles of wellness with best practices in school culture and climate transformation.

"Self care is not selfish. You cannot serve from an empty vessel."



S.A.G.E.’s mission is simple-- to make schools better for children.

S.A.G.E. imagines a world where schools are loving spaces for all children, where a school's social-emotional well-being, culture, and climate are as important as its academics, performance, and ranking.

For this vision to manifest, it is imperative that we support the well-being of educators who take care of our children. Through our holistic approach, S.A.G.E. Wellness:

  • Advocates for well-being in schools;

  • Supports educator self-care; and

  • Grows equanimity in schools through mindfulness.

We create high-vibrating, intentionally meditative spaces that serve as a recharging and resting place for faculty, admin, and students.

We provide high-level youth leadership and apprenticeship in mindfulness, social-emotional well-being, and conflict resolution.

We provide exceptional workshops that promote well-being and cultivate the S.A.G.E.: Self-Care, Amity, Growth, Equanimity.

We partner with schools for collaborative planning, development, & implementation of a consensus-based school climate & culture plan.



Founded in 2017 by a former ELA teacher, S.A.G.E was created in response to the increasing levels of stress and burnout teachers face. 

Educators play a significant role in shaping the lives of children. Not only do we facilitate academic learning, but we also influence a child’s social-emotional development and well-being. We are key influencers of healthy relationships. We help students reach their highest potential and nurture their understanding of who they are and who they can become in the world. Yet, being an educator has become increasingly stressful—a reality that negatively impacts us, students, and school communities alike.

"If your compassion does not include yourself, it is incomplete."



“You really helped me through thick and thin. When you came to our school, it was a tough time for me and the rest of the group. S.A.G.E. really helped us sooooooo much. I’m so grateful for S.A.G.E. To this day, I still meditate to help cope with all of the struggles of school and future high school.”

"This has honestly been the most helpful self-select workshop since I've started this journey with TFA. Thank you for making me vulnerable. Thank you for taking me to my happy place. And, thank you for listening. So blessed to have met you!"

“Teachers and students need a space to reflect and respond to the daily challenges they face. Our Peace Room offers a great space for our team to utilize Restorative Practices to support their communication and deepen their relationships.”

Principal Brown, New Song Academy



46% of teachers report high daily stress. This is the highest rate of daily rate among all occupations, tied with nurses and higher than physicians.
