Teacher and Staff Well-being

School staff and teachers can’t be at their best if they don’t have support for their own health and well-being. By supporting the whole person and the things they need to be healthy and happy, schools and districts can help school employees feel their best while they live out their passion for education.

Kaiser Permanente supports staff and teacher well-being because we know it:

  1. Helps retain teachers and staff
  2. Reduces stress
  3. Boosts job satisfaction
