about us and mission

What We Do

Happy Teacher Revolution is a Baltimore-born, national movement with the mission to support the mental health and wellness of teachers. Our long term goal is to empower educators to initiate HTR meetings across every school district in the US

Our Vision

Our vision is for teachers to feel empowered to claim happiness as their own. We believe that teachers should not feel obligated to sacrifice their wholeness
or well-being in order to perform well
professionally.

How It Works

Teachers come together, sit in a circle, and the teacher facilitating the meeting reads the mission of HTR and the twelve wellness choices. Teachers then share with one another their experiences in education and any wellness strategies that have worked for them.

Short Term Goals: Initiate Happy Teacher Revolution meetings in all fifty-three TFA regions by 2018

Long Term Goals: Empower educators to initiate HTR meetings across every school district in the US

Often, teachers are asked to give so much in terms of time, money, and emotional capacity. We strive to empower teachers to push back on these expectations in hopes of them striking a balance between excellent teaching and personal sustainability.
