Create Thriving Classrooms with Along: Connecting Teachers and Students through Conversation
Well-being is an essential foundation for learning. When students feel seen, understood, and valued as individuals and as part of a community, they are more likely to stay motivated and engaged in school. By backing researched-informed solutions, developing new tools, and partnering with diverse communities, CZI equips educators to provide all students with an education that supports both their academic achievement and well-being.
Teaching is challenging, and educators need ongoing support to avoid burnout and support their students. Our partners offer professional learning opportunities, mentorship, and communities of support to boost teacher well-being, so they can continue to meet the needs of their students, and thrive in the profession.

All students deserve an education that supports their learning and well-being, and prepares them for success in school and life. Our partners are helping educators more deeply understand how students learn and develop, and bring those insights in their classrooms.
“We can no longer bypass the educator to get to the student. Adult wellness is the foundation for transformative education.”
“If we want to keep teachers of color in our schools, then we must invest in their well-being and give them the tools they need to be their authentic selves in the classroom.”
“We believe that all educators need and deserve spaces that offer the same care and attention they provide to students. When we come together to invest in whole educators who in turn grow whole students, we are closer to a happier, healthier, and more equitable world.”
