The Moore Well-Being Program

Sometimes we have the best of intentions when we implement a program. We follow the steps, monitor progress, and maybe even achieve some defined goals. Yet if a program is truly to be effective, it has to impact more than an issue or objective. It has to change us as a person. Only then will we carry forward all we have learned in all that we do. The Moore Well-Being Program affects change from the inside out.

Co-Teaching

It's increasingly common for more than one teacher to be in a classroom at a time, with teachers for special education and English as a second language being expected to collaborate. Teachers are often thrown into this collaboration without training and trouble ensues. I can help reduce the challenges by providing co-teachers with training on the models of co-teaching, helping co-teachers identify the model they would like to use, as well as the structures to support future collaboration.

Faculty & Staff Self-Care

Schools can be difficult places to work. When we add our own personal struggles, things can feel overwhelming. This professional development helps adults become aware of their own emotional triggers and how they can support themselves and one another.

Communication Training / Workshop

When the communication among the adults in a school community is honest, clear and kind, people thrive. When it is not, people leave, fight or are unhappy. I have found that when people have the skills and support to engage in healthy work communication, school culture can shift dramatically. I design workshops for schools that help people develop the skill set to engage in healthy communication in the school setting. I can customize workshops for teachers, administrators and caregivers/parents.

DiSC

DiSC is a questionnaire for school staff to help them better understand how they behave at work and how they respond to conflict. The results are then printed, generating an individual profile for each  person, providing them with significant insight into how they can best work with others in school. I provide workshops to help staff use all of this rich information to develop a healthy, collaborative staff culture.

"It is no longer a question of IF we need to support the well-being of adults in our schools, it is a question of WHEN."

Look at the evidence supporting the need for greater well-being among school staff

Look what people are saying about Dr. Jenn Moore and her well-being services!

Jenn was more than just my principal, but a coach, thought partner and leader. She encouraged me to take risks as an educator, guiding me in the pursuit of making the content accessible for all students. She allowed me to shape my own professional development to address what I knew I needed to be a stronger instructor. Most of all, she trusted my expertise while pushing me to find new methods to increase my efficacy as a teacher, as a learner and as a leader. She knows that until children are fed, rested and assured of their own emotional and intellectual security in our building that true learning can't happen. Her devotion to educating the whole child made her an invaluable asset to our school's culture and community.
