About HHSTeacher

Hey Rock Star Teacher! 

Do you wish you could end the school year feeling as energized as you started it? 

Or wish you could hit a reset button right now?

Are you ready to press reset but have no idea where that button is?

Look no further.  We’ve got the button. 

The Healthy, Happy, Sane Teacher: Sustainable Self-Care for a Successful School Year is what you need to make teaching joyful, next school year delightful, and living a balanced life not just possible but in your control.

Tami Hackbarth and Rosie Molinary are two former teachers trying to save you from the error of our ways.

We are starting a movement to empower teachers to claim their self-care and live more balanced and healthy lives.

The bonus?  Nothing suffers—not your personal life and not your professional life.  In fact, it will actually make you an even bigger rock star at your school while making you happier at home.

We know what you are going through and we have been there, done that with all the “solutions” that actually made things worse. Now, we have actually figured out what makes things better and we don’t want to keep those secrets to ourselves.  That’s why we are sharing them with you.

The Healthy, Happy, Sane Teacher: Sustainable Self-Care For a Successful School Year.  

Imagine having teaching veterans walk you through best practices for self-care, letting go of the pressure for perfection, understanding how to name and claim your intentions, checking in with yourself when things get tough so you know how to tweak things, understanding what boundaries to set and how to set them, and the power of claiming your life.

Imagine inspiring guidance that actually has you lay out a plan now so that you can actually do less with more.

We are offering you five weeks of powerful learning, action taking, and life changing reflection because, while it wasn’t covered in your certification program, it is what you most need to sustain yourself as a teacher.

Who We Are

who we are

Hi, I’m Rosie!

During a life spent figuring out how to empower myself, I found my mission: to empower women and girls to embrace their authentic selves so they can live their passion and purpose and give their gifts to the world. The author of Beautiful You: A Daily Guide to Radical Self Acceptance and Hijas Americanas: Beauty, Body Image, and Growing Up Latina,I teach courses on body image at the University of North Carolina-Charlotte and facilitate transformative workshops and retreats for women while speaking on body image, identity, social justice, and diversity around the country.

A former high school teacher and coach, I learned the importance of self-care when I ended up hospitalized just months after one of my students wrote me a note that said, “I fear that you may give until you give out.” Direct words from the ER doctor I saw twice in one week (“I am willing to keep seeing you here as long as you are willing to keep landing yourself here”), taught me a valuable lesson about self-care that I have worked hard to hold onto more than a decade later.

Hi, I’m Tami!

I am a former politico, public school teacher turned restorative yoga teacher. I believe the stress of modern life caused by too much work, unhealed trauma, and the cultural love of busyness can be cured with restorative yoga.

For years I worked long hours thinking if I just put more time into my job, I could some how get ahead instead of always feeling like I was one step behind or I could make even more of a difference. Only when I got too sick to get out of bed would I allow myself to rest.

During my yoga teacher training at It’s All Yoga in Sacramento, I discovered the benefits of restorative yoga and have seen my own mental and physical health dramatically improve from this practice. As a recovering Type A perfectionist, I know how hard it is to take a break. However, I have seen first hand how taking care of myself enables me to take better care of those who depend on me.
