SAI CatchLife Program Background and Testimonials

Learn more about the SAI CatchLife program

Today more than ever it's essential that we prioritize our health and wellbeing. The statistics about educator burnout are not only startling to read but frightening. SAI offered CatchLife at the right time for me. The program helped me be intentional about my physical and mental health. It not only helped me to focus on things that matter but be a model for my staff.

I appreciate the quick, daily messages and have printed off the leadership skills to reflect on in the morning. It helps set my day up for success. We can't take care of others if we don't take care of ourselves.

~ Sarah Seney, elementary principal, Grinnell-Newburg
