What is

Teaching Mindset? 

The mission of Teaching Mindset is to support new teachers with stress management, mental health and wellness.


Marin plans and leads highly interactive and accessible workshops and professional development sessions for new teachers and the mentors, administrators, and coaches who supervise them. Participants learn and practice techniques from cognitive-behavioral therapy, mindfulness and positive psychology, while also engaging with the latest research in young adult development and teacher education. Marin also provides coaching and consultation to schools and organizations, as well as individual therapy

Marin's work is highly informed by her own experiences as a new teacher and school administrator, along with her work as a therapist to young adults.
