We are getting close to the end of a school year that proved to be as challenging and intense as the last one; a year in which we have again exceeded our limits, reinvented ourselves, and created new ways of connecting with our students. It was not easy at all. We have all experienced difficult times, but managed once again to find the inner resources to move forward on our path.
We congratulate you from the bottom of our hearts for every accomplishment, be it big or small, for every child who has remained connected to school, for every solution you have found and for every challenge that you have faced with great courage!
Thank you for joining our community of happy teachers and because, together, we have managed to implement so many beautiful projects, as you will see next.
The last week of May was dedicated to emotional health in the classroom and it generated a real Well-Being movement among teachers from all over the country. Over 30.000 teachers and kids enjoyed creative activities, discussions, and games together.
This ”different week” can be adapted based on the wishes and the necessities of each class and put into practice at any time, therefore bringing more joy, enthusiasm, and connection between children and their teachers. Each day of The Emotional Health Week has a specific theme and a challenge that kids and teachers have to fulfill. Through this, the students and the preschoolers will have the opportunity to recognize, control, and value their emotions in a constructive and beneficial manner for their emotional development.
But the story doesn’t end here! Inspired by Emotional Health Week, the teachers from our community have created a new concept, in a similar format, dedicated to reading, the D.E.A.R. (Drop Everything And Read) initiative, but we will tell you more about this in our next newsletter.

The national training “Teacher Well-Being” continues!
With the support from Herlitz România, Pelikan and Azomureș, we continue the national training program “Teacher Well-Being – A Conscious Journey” and we hope to meet with teachers from as many counties in the country as possible. In May, our training reached teachers from Sibiu County, as well as those from Constanța County, where Chimpex and Aquatica Experience joined us as partners.
The journey to The Well-Being continues with new friends!
The De La Ferma cu Omenie wanted to support the schools from the city where they operate with a training for the well-being of teachers. Therefore, for 5 weeks, “Teacher Well-Being” will take place in Ocna Mureș, Alba County and our mission to see more and more happy teachers is starting to have an increasing impact!
