Overcome Overwhelm: Steps to Building Your Toolbox
A virtual presentation for educators
If your school has made the difficult decision to return to in-person learning this fall, we understand the variety of emotions and the feeling of overall overwhelm that may have brought up for your staff. We want to support educators as they navigate this time and work to build their internal "toolbox" of techniques to support their own emotional well-being, as well as the SEL needs of their students, parents, co-workers.

Living In The Gray: How To Mindfully Parent During COVID-19
A virtual presentation available to schools and their parents
We know this time in education has been just as challenging and overwhelming for parents to navigate. Managing your children's questions during uncertain times may be one of the most stressful parents of parenting right now. Learn acceptance strategies to cope with uncertainty and feel more in control of the day-to-day moments in life.
Anxiety Management In The Classroom
A virtual presentation for educators
In this train-the-trainer style presentation, our team will guide your staff on the basics of identifying anxiety and why mindfulness is a useful tool to regulate emotions. We will then teach how to model the techniques and provide tips for successful implementation in the classroom.
Simply Bee has visited our elementary school the last two years. This year we expanded the program to include students, teachers, and parents. The feedback has been nothing but positive from all involved. Audrey and her staff are extremely knowledgable, approachable, and relatable. They offer a very well-balanced approach to the social-emotional learning process. We can’t wait for them to come again next year.
Christy Hunter, Principal at Hawthorn Elementary South
I found your presentation [Overcome Overwhelm] to be amazing,

Heather P. Occupational Therapist
Audrey and her team at Simply Bee have been one of our most trusted partners and allies over the past few years. Their blend of strong content, relatability and forward-thinking technology allows them to connect with students and families in a way that many can’t. Our community and schools are better because of their work. To check out LEAD's work, click here.

Member of the Board of Education in District 65
Audrey was able to present a telehealth workshop [Connecting Through The Screen] to our staff as our school navigated through some uncharted territory during the COVID pandemic. It was packed with a ton of great ideas and practices that I feel our staff can benefit from, not only for their own health and wellness but also the health and wellness of our students. From beginning to end, they were easy to work with and we look forward to working with them in the future!

Interactive Wellness E-Workbook For Educators
Most educators have one thing in common: a deep desire to take care of their students and their own family members. Fulfilling this desire, however, frequently prevents you from meeting your personal physical, mental health and wellness goals. Here at Simply Bee, we know that bees help their hives become successful through individual work for the greater good. The same idea applies to you as an educator. Get ready to focus on yourself through our workbook filled with mini-lessons on Mindset, Physical Health, Spiritual Practice and Emotional Growth. If you work hard to take care of yourself first, it directly impacts your hive (e.g. your classroom and your family). The same is true on the flip side,though. If you don't take care of yourself, your hive suffers. Our 4x4 Wellness Model for Educators will help you discover hidden hours in your day, sustain your energy through food and exercise, improve your self care through yoga and meditation and boost your mood using mindfulness techniques.

What We Solve
Finding motivation and inspiration in life can be hard to achieve. For many educators finding time, energy, positivity and practicing self-care seems even more out of reach due to the demands on their plates. We've talked with teachers about their "bad days" and most admit that on those days they feel stressed, overwhelmed with tasks, isolated, tired, sluggish, useless and anxious. They feel as if their buttons are constantly being pushed, they're overreacting, highly irritable and have no energy left for their personal life.
Our team of experts understands these pain points and will work with you through our 4x4 Wellness Model for Educators to help you discover how you can make changes to positively impact your personal and professional life.
What We Achieve
Think about the "good days" you have as an educator. How do you feel during or after a good day? Maybe you feel clear-minded, present, aligned with your values, motivated, patient, energized, productive and proud of how you're making a difference. These "good day" feelings are your deep desires as an educator and as a person. Once we identify and work to solve your pain point issues, you are better able to achieve these deep desires.
Our 4 'Set' Approach
Each set includes 4 mini-lessons & applications
*Control Your Time*
Mental skills are the foundation to success, which includes managing time to feel like there is enough time in a day to "get it all done" and have gas left in the tank for spiritual, physical and emotional health. Our day is filled from morning to night. Between lesson planning, teaching, grading school work and taking care of your personal to-dos, it's hard to imagine you have any "hidden" hours in your day. But you do! And we can help you find them.
*Sustain Your Energy*
Physical health is important to sustain energy through food exercise. Mood and emotions impact the way you make decisions about food. We approach nutrition and exercise from a mental wellness viewpoint. So when those "bad days" pop up more frequently than the good days and you're feeling tired and unmotivated, you have the tools to help you not spiral out of control.
*Improve Your Self Care*
Spiritual health to connect to the purpose of educators work and more. Once you're able to identify extra hours in your day to focus on your overall health and nutrition, it's important to continually care for yourself. Mindfulness and movement are two of the best ways to practice self-care. You don't have to be an expert yogi to feel the positive effects of gentle movement, breathing and deep relaxation techniques.
*Boost Your Mood*
