Every day, the teachers who serve in our local schools give their heart and soul to their students. They have the daunting task of navigating the complexities of poverty and the long-lasting impact of the pandemic, while also instilling a love for learning in these young lives. Without a doubt, their days are long and the challenges they face are great.
This December, the Cobbs Creek Foundation partnered with Yoga4Philly to support these amazing educators. As a holiday gift, we offered our area schools restorative yoga for their teachers to promote self-care and prevent burnout. Our hope is to continue this trend in providing a monthly yoga class to each of our three school partners. Our goal is to promote self-care amongst these incredible teachers, enabling them to give back this serenity to their students. We remain in awe of the incredible selflessness of their staff and are thrilled that the deep partnerships we have been building with these schools continue to grow! The pictures below were taken at West Philadelphia Academic Charter Elementary School; we will be hosting this event at Lewis C. Cassidy School in January.
