What Educators Are Saying About FuelEd Programs

Thank you for recognizing the importance and power of this work and for creating this program. Walking away, I am convinced that this is THE work from which all the rest of our work as teachers (as humans, really) extends. It has given me the tools to empathize and navigate some difficult conversations. It changes a thousand small things all at once . . . This year is different. I am different.

It gives you an opportunity to practice what you’re going to take back to your campus. Thank you so much.

Not only does this apply to my professional life but personal as well.

I had one teacher, a LONG time veteran tell me that this was THE best adult PD she has ever been involved in . . . it was fantastic. It was eye-opening at the very least for many people and much different from the PD they are used to getting.


Houston, TX.

I thought it was great. Your folks did a great job. It was great for me personally and for the group. All of the feedback we got back was very high. The highest validation you can get really.

Everyone needs this. Personally I have had a series of really great leadership convos. I didn't go in thinking I'm going to use my FuelEd, it was just naturally a better conversation, more authentic.

The training gave me critical self awareness that is missing from other PD. It was a new to me. That means it is new to everyone else to - I've been around a hot minute. It fundamentally informed how I look at the campus work.

Why FuelEd?

Many initiatives in the SEL space focus on the social and emotional development of the student, but educators cannot possibly model this work if they have not developed personally first, nor can they be truly “trauma-informed” if they have not processed and healed from their own trauma.

With over 8 years of experience developing the emotional intelligence and self-awareness of educators, FuelEd is the premier provider for adult social-emotional learning, helping educators grow into secure attachment figures that build the kinds of relationships that heal trauma, promote brain growth, and produce optimal learning.
