Teachers of Tomorrow


Advancing school wellness through teacher preparedness.

The Teachers of Tomorrow initiative proposes an upstream approach to addressing student well-being through the issue of teacher preparedness, situating it both as a proximal factor with immediate student impact, and as a critical lever of systemic change utilizing a Comprehensive School Health (CSH) framework.

Recognizing the potential for downstream student impacts and for rippling across educational contexts, Ever Active Schools began actively partnering with the Werklund School of Education in 2011 to accelerate closure of the critical gap between how teachers are prepared to address wellness and what they are expected to do in practice.

These collaborative efforts have both informed, and been informed by, the culture of wellness in the Faculty at Werklund School of Education and in school communities across Alberta. The results of this work has been a prototype for a system of wellness education, modelled on the CSH framework and involving the development of key partnerships, addressing the social and physical environments of the faculty, implementing healthy school policies and teaching and learning strategies.

Teachers of Tomorrow works in a dedicated way with six sites across Western Canada (Werklund School of Education, University of Alberta, University of Lethbridge, Concordia University of Edmonton, University of British Columbia and Mount Royal University). Each site has formed a team of health/wellness champions and has worked to assess their current states of wellness within their Faculties. Each of the sites is now in the phase of creating and implementing an action plan. Fourteen additional corresponding national sites have been involved through the National Forum on Wellness in Post Secondary Education, which has been hosted annually since 2018. Key deliverables of this project that are intended to promote knowledge exchange include the website and the co-creation of a podcast series, Conversations on School Health, as part of the The Podclass.
