Holistic Education: How to Partner With Your Child's Teacher

Updated: Jun 30, 2020

Hello beautiful!

I’m Autumn

You are a spiritual being

having a human experience

and I'm here to help you

manifest a life you love.

Are you a parent searching for help and advice on providing your child with a holistic education?

Or maybe you're an educator looking for resources to use in the classroom that go beyond just teaching content.

Either way, this episode of Golden Otter Divinations is for you!

Education has always been important to me. Many of you already know that I spent ten years in the classroom as a high school social studies teacher and earned a Master's Degree in Secondary Education. Now as the mother of 2 beautiful daughters, the topic of holistic education has become even more near and dear to my heart. 💗

That's why I'm so excited to hold this conversation on Golden Otter Divinations with Adrienne Collins, fellow educator and founder of Great Day Academics, where we're discussing how to partner with your child's teacher in providing holistic education that serves the whole child. 🍎

When we think about "academics," we usually think about the core content areas: math, science, social studies, etc. 📚 But what if our school systems weren't limited to these areas of study? What if schools were also teaching students the life skills that they need to create healthy relationships and to be authentically happy — not just in elementary school but throughout their entire educational career? 👩‍🎓

Great Day Academics was founded in response to this need for change within the educational system. We are hearing a resounding "call to action" from teachers, parents, and students alike who have all become frustrated with an educational system that does not serve the whole child. Great Day Academics is seeking ways to bring about sustainable change within schools. 🎓

Holistic education is no longer a term of the woo-woo realm. Education experts from around the world are realizing the importance of emphasizing physical, mental, social and emotional wellbeing in addition to cognitive education within schools. 🏫

In this episode of Golden Otter Divinations, I'm interviewing Adrienne Collins, M.Ed on the topic of sustainable, holistic education for all age levels. 👩‍🏫


  • The importance of supporting the whole child in the classroom setting 🧠

  • Shifting from traditional "classroom management" into a model that teaches children how to self-regulate 💚

  • Empowering children to re-examine their own definitions of success 💡

  • Teaching children to learn about one's self and how to have healthy relationships with others (at all ages, not just elementary) 🧘🏾‍♀️

  • How to help kids thrive and learn in a sustainable way that also helps prevent teacher burnout 🎓
