Hi, I'm Katie Quick (she/her).


I am a Social-Emotional Learning Specialist, Licensed Professional Counselor, former classroom teacher and national speaker with over 17 years in education and a passion for SEL and teacher advocacy. 


I help schools transform with love by implementing equitable, inclusive, and compassionate SEL-based systems and structures that support the whole school community resulting in consistent, data-supported growth, even during a pandemic.

I have a Masters degree in Counseling from Northwestern University, and in addition teaching every grade level from preschool through 8th grade since 2005, I also have my own private practice where I specialize in educator mental health. 

I provide everything from consultation to assemblies, to live concerts and SEL curriculum. There are so many ways we can work together. I look forward to connecting, collaborating, and supporting you in any way I can. 

With love and gratitude,

17 years in education. 7 different schools. 3 separate burn-outs. 2 career changes. Toxic work environments. Depression. Anxiety. Isolation. Guilt. Shame. 

This was my experience as a teacher.

Over the years, I was dying for support. Literally. My life always seemed to be falling apart. I couldn't take care of myself, my relationships were suffering, and my mental and physical health was at an all time low. I experienced everything from bullying from administrators to sexual harassment and panic attacks. I had nowhere to turn.

Sadly, my story is not unique. 

Teachers in our country are suffering. They are facing constant pressure with little to no acknowledgement, proper pay, resources or support to equal the endless hours and personal sacrifice they endure.

Join me on my mission to prevent teacher burnout, improve school culture and climate, and revolutionize the educational system in America (with love).
