Wellness & Wellbeing for Families & Teachers in a Time of Transition

Online event
Tuesday, May 4, 2021
7:00 pm to 8:15 pm PDT

Join us virtually for a conversation between health care providers and educators as they share their experience of the last school year. Our panel will discuss their thoughts, practices, ideas, and resources for families and teachers as they prepare students and themselves for the close of this school year and the beginning of the year ahead. A portion of proceeds from this event will be donated to support families in need.

Chrissy Nichols, The Chrissy Concept LLC, Life Coach & Educator

Chrissy Nichols, founder and CEO of The Chrissy Concept LLC, is a life coach and educator who focuses her work on serving teachers. After spending 20 years in classrooms all over the world, Chrissy felt burnt out, used up, and wanted to leave education. Using the tools that coaching taught her, she is now both a teacher and a life coach for teachers. The three main reasons that teachers seek her work are to create more time and energy, feel better about their health and bodies, and create better relationships in and outside the classroom.
