Transform Your Classroom Atmosphere.

A Systematic Approach to Meeting your Wellbeing and Academic Goals

​Hi, we’re Kailey and Josianne, the founders of Educalme (pronounced “edu-calm”!). Nice to meet you!

 

We’ve been in the field of education for over 10 years. So, we have a first-hand understanding of the realities of the classroom and the challenges that both teachers and students face every day.

We developed the research-backed Educalme online program in response to the rise in anxiety, stress and burnout in the classroom for both students and educators. And, as we know, the pandemic has further intensified this crisis and the need for evidence-based solutions.

How a Common Problem Led to an Innovative Solution

 

It all started when we were facing burnout as teachers. We were also so tired of piecing together social-emotional learning lessons from different sources that didn’t fit together. Plus, we taught in a French Immersion setting and we couldn’t find a bilingual program. We needed a ready-to-use program that improved self-regulation, mental health, and academic achievement for all members of the classroom (including us, the teachers!).

Frustrated by this lack of quality resources, we set out to develop a program ourselves. We launched Educalme in 2017. We tested Educalme in our own classrooms and piloted it for two years in K-12 classrooms across Canada and the United States. We tweaked and improved the CASEL aligned program based on the data we collected. In 2019, a third-party evaluation was done on Educalme and it demonstrated that this program improves self-regulation, focus, resilience, classroom management and more!

Now, teachers choose to use Educalme in their classrooms to improve both student and teacher wellbeing because…

 

  • Educalme does not require professional development, release time, lesson planning or preparations, which makes it a very affordable option. It is designed so that K-12 teachers learn alongside their students by pressing “play” on the pre-recorded lessons.
  • Educalme is completely bilingual (English & French) and lessons are recorded in a Western Canadian French accent, making it easier for French Immersion students to understand.
  • Educalme is a trauma-sensitive year-long program that allows students and teachers to co-regulate with daily self-care practices and learn concrete skills for emotional wellness and mental health.
  • Educalme creates a positive daily mental hygiene routine that gives teachers and students coping strategies and common vocabulary to return to calm and focus quickly, so less time is wasted on classroom management, and more time is dedicated to teaching the curriculum.

Instead of reactively addressing student and teacher stress and anxiety once they’re already burned out, Educalme is a proactive and systematic approach for preventing overwhelm and burnout, while preparing minds and bodies for effective teaching and learning every single day of the school year.

 

Self-care shouldn’t be reserved for after-school hours to make up for the burnout you’ve experienced during the school day.

 

Educalme flips the script and makes wellbeing an integral part of your classroom routine for both your students and YOU.
