Sophia Koehler-Derrick

Educator

Before joining the Contentment Foundation as a Rollout Representative, Sophia was an educator for five years in Brooklyn, NY. She knows the stress of finding balance as an educator who: cares deeply for the well-being of their students, while trying to prioritize their academic achievements, answer endless emails, care for yourself as an individual, and stay awake during staff meetings. She is proud to be a champion of genuine support for teachers who are called upon to do so much, and hopes to bring pockets of joy, rest, & resilience to all the educators she serves. She is passionate about the Four Pillars of Wellbeing and how they can improve the quality of all of our lives.

She holds a Masters of Education from Brooklyn College. Is a RISE for educators recipient from Kripalu’s Center for Yoga & Health and holds a teacher certification for Loving, Kindness from Nalanda Institute for Contemplative Sciences.
