About Teach Like a Human

SUSTAIN yourself | TRAIN your students | CHANGE the system

Could this be the most growth-filled year of your teacher-life?

This might be your hardest teacher-year yet. But I believe you can actually claim it as your most growth-filled, with benefits extending far beyond this year:

It can be your chance to identify and work on the things that matter most to you as a teacher and a person.

It can be your chance to help students understand what works for them and what they need better than ever before.

Teach Like a Human is your guide to doing just that, completely reimagining what it can look like to be a teacher who teaches with more effectiveness, more joy, and more justice, all while growing in peace and confidence as a human, as a teacher, and as a community member.

I’ve had the honor of working with and for teachers all over the globe, but Teach Like a Human is the single service to teachers that I’m most proud of and most excited about.

Each of the 25 segments contains several videos and text sections helping you apply one reliable, memorable principle that will simultaneously improve your teaching and help you live a balanced, encouraging, peaceful life that brings fulfillment to yourself and others.


The program will challenge you with new ideas and concrete things you can work on every week, without overwhelming you—like everything at TeachHuman, it’s utterly committed to taking seriously that you’re a human being...who is also a teacher.


Teach Like a Human doesn’t just help you teach and live better—it also helps you train your students to learn and live better, in ways that you can embed right into your regular class content and activities.


But TeachHuman isn’t just about individual growth: It’s also about improving the settings and changing the systems that make it hard to teach, learn, and live well, and the program is full of practices for doing just that.


So, how does Teach Like a Human help you grow—in skill, in wisdom, in poise, in peace—and help you train students and change systems, without overwhelming you?


Everything is organized into bite-sized units, with a range of options for things you can implement, depending on your goals, your time, your teaching situation, and your life situation. If you ever want to go back and work on things you decided to skip, those things will always still be there for you, and the program itself will bring back applications of earlier principles along the way.


Finally, Teach Like a Human supports you in all of these things by being not just a curriculum, but a community—a community of fellow teachers you can lean on and learn with on the journey of teaching and living better.

A new segment is released once a week, to give you plenty of time to reflect and to practice the applications.

One of the most inspiring teachers, and humans, I've had the pleasure of knowing.

Justin Slocum Bailey is the ultimate educator.

JSB is my new hero. I mean, I really enjoyed watching him work and hearing him speak. He's authentic, intelligent, sincere. The real deal.

Justin’s enthusiasm and sense of humor were amazing!

Justin should be the keynote speaker at every conference!

I truly didn’t want today to end! This is the type of professional development that teachers crave.

One of the best speakers I have seen in my entire career!!

My new mantra is "Teach like JSB is watching!"

Awesome energy!

Justin's ease with students is pure magic.

Whenever I face a pedagogical decision, however big or small, I ask myself, "What would Justin do?"

Holy gifted batman! Justin's command of a classroom is amazing.

I learned a mountain of wonderful strategies!

He was so engaging and so entertaining. SUCH a great speaker and so inspirational!

Justin was great. I like that he is animated, yet low-key. He inspired me to recommit to a focus on communication as the essential task in my classes.

Quería darte las gracias por la clase de hoy, en verdad fue muy divertido e inspirador. Estaré al pendiente de tu vuelta a México para volver a tomar otro taller. ¡Gracias!

Ausgezeichnet! Your energy and true caring shone through so beautifully.

Justin is an amazing presenter.

One of the greatest teachers I have ever encountered.

His enthusiasm and engagement model so well.

You treated everyone in the class like they mattered PERSONALLY to you. You looked them in the eyes, you remembered their names, you TOLD them they were interesting. You were laughing, they were laughing, and you let the mistakes be part of the fun. Their successes were yours - you were EXCITED by their success.

What I appreciated most was the specific activities I learned, combined with Justin’s willingness to engage with our questions and ideas.

An amazing experience.

Justin's presentation freed me up to do what I have long felt was best.

Your (Justin's) exemplary skills + empathy + humor. An inspiring model.

A totally accomplished and expert presenter! I will be studying this presentation in depth.

The kind of teacher/presenter I'd like to have a beer with.

I learned by experience that I really can do this!
