Welcome to Courage To Teach®

Are you an educator or school leader who…

  • has a life-long interest in personal and professional growth?
  • is committed to aligning your personal values with your professional practice?
  • seeks to overcome the isolation of your role and develop a greater capacity to bridge the distance between yourself and your students and colleagues?
  • is wondering about potential leadership roles or your future in education?

If some of these questions are true for you, Courage to Teach® invites you to participate in a day-long, multi-day or weekend seasonal retreat series designed to revitalize the hearts, minds, and spirits of educators.


The Maine Courage To Teach® initiative is affiliated with Courage & Renewal® Northeast and Center for Courage & Renewal®.
