Wellness

Highline Wellness

It is so important to take care of ourselves during this time. When we are our best selves, we can bring our best for our students and families.  

Resources

In our weekly staff newsletter, the Highline Insider, we share practices for health and well-being from our Social-Emotional Learning team.

Scroll down on this page to see information provided since spring.

The Adult Wellness Team has also created a virtual calming room for staff. The virtual calming room will be a place to access short exercises in mindfulness, calming and laughter. There will also be resources for understanding and communicating mental health needs to others.

Today, we focus on wellness in educators. As an educator, you may find you are sacrificing yourself--mind, body, wellbeing, spirit, time and health--to serve your students, colleagues, schools and/or your district. 

To better serve yourself, let's learn about the dimensions of wellness. When these dimensions feel fulfilled, we are better able to function in life and meet our responsibilities at an optimum level.
