Teacher Appreciation Week, May 8-12

Hello LWA 2023 Seekers of Greater Well-BEing!

It’s May and the school year is coming to an end.  This week is Teacher Appreciation Week.  What a wonderful time to stop and thank those teachers who have been key in our lives (and for many, that of our children and grandchildren).  I love talking about the many teachers who played a key role in my education, encouraging me to go to college – especially since my parents didn’t make it past the 6th grade because of poverty issues.  I owe so much of my fulfillment in life to dedicated teachers.  I can’t thank them enough.  

I hope everyone will enter a state of gratitude for the many teachers that have impacted their lives and those of our youth today.  Brainstorm on what you can do to let them know how much you appreciate their efforts.  What can you do during Teacher Appreciation Week for your local school district?  It’s about being grateful.  It’s all about Living WELL Aware!

THANKS to the many school districts throughout the state of Texas and beyond who have used previous editions of my adolescent health curricula (Scott & White Worth the Wait and BSWH Adolescent Wellness & Sexual Health).  Many are now implementing my recently released latest 8th Edition entitled Living WELL Aware: My Choices, My Life including Killeen ISD, Belton ISD, Troy ISD, Gatesville ISD, Connally ISD, Manor ISD, Taylor ISD, Boerne ISD, Lampasas ISD, Navasota ISD, Azle ISD, Cherokee ISD, Comal ISD, and more to come in 2023-2024.  The list keeps growing as more schools become aware of our easy to implement online curriculum with components for parents covering the newly released health TEKS including the critically important topics of drug abuse, violence, bullying, trafficking, digital dangers, sexual abuse, emotional difficulties, communication skills, healthy relationships, nutrition, physical activity, and much more.  

For more information about Living WELL Aware: My Choices, My Life, contact us at  and check out the info videos at under the Adolescent Wellness TAB.   Let’s stop the epidemic of adolescent and adult health decline with doable strategies that work!  We look forward to traveling the wellness journey with you!  It’s all about Living WELL Aware for adolescents and adults!
