Hello there

We're spark. The future of educator wellness. We use the science of movement, mindfulness, habit change, adult development, & stress management to support full school staff— including teachers, leaders, & all who support them

We give education leaders back time, money, & energy normally spent on recruiting because we

Empower educators to create & implement individualized, wholistic, self-care routines

Expand the educator wellness community beyond their local school to reach a broader network of support

About US

The spark niche is where

education × wellness × tech intersect.

On average, 44% of teachers leave the classroom in the first 5 years of their career. Gabby Lubin, Founder & CEO of spark was one. Rather than blame herself, she realized her burnout was part of a larger system problem— a lack of accessible wellness supports for teachers.

The effects of COVID-19 have exacerbated the stress already present in teachers' lives. The time is now to step up support for schools. At spark, we work to increase retention through customizable, continuous, & financially sustainable wellness programming for adults. 

Former educators make up over 50% of the spark team.

We understand what educators face. We lead each moment with our values: mind & body, community, & social justice.

 

And we want to share spark with you.
