Created with love, by someone who understands.

Smile Teachers was born out of an experience close to the heart. One you may even recognise and seen in others or yourself. 


Our founder, Shaun Kay, knows all too well the effect of constantly showing up, giving 110% of his energy and time, and always being on-the-go in the demanding realm of teaching. Experiencing burnout, leading to low-performance teaching and obscuring what once was his passion for inspiring others, to feel like a heavy burden, he knew a change was needed. 


His personal journey of discovery and development led him to the creation of Smile Teachers, a movement to encourage teachers like you to continue to fill yourself up, and give back to yourself so that you stay energise and inspired to continue to do what you love. 


This retreat is a chance for you to experience this, and take with you the lessons and connection to your true purpose, to kick-start your new teaching year with the energy you wish to share with your students, family, community, and the world. 

It will revolutionise how you teach, as well as how you move through the world. 


Have you felt this all-too-common feeling of burnout and exhaustion from working as a present leader and teacher in? Not to mention juggling families and other responsibilities on top of it all. 


Even if you’re new to teaching, it demands so much from us mentally, emotionally, energetically and physically. It can be easy to forget to give ourselves what we need to stay energised and inspired, and this is why we must choose to step away from this space for some time and connect back to why we have chosen to be thought-leaders and knowledge-inspirers in the first place.


This is where Smile Teachers comes in, and this is exactly why the Bali Retreat for teachers has been designed for YOU.


It was birthed from my own experience, as I mentioned earlier because I know what it feels like to go through this and come out of the other side. Some of you may thankfully have not have felt this intensity, though I’m sure all of us, at some point, have felt that energy of constantly giving and not filling ourselves up in the process.


In 2016, I was battling against the impact that burnout and mental illness were having on my teaching performance and lifestyle. My relationships with others suffered, but more importantly, my relationship with myself was horrific. Of course, this had follow-on effects to everything I did in my life - my work included.


The self-doubt, pity, worry, and anxiety that had manifested was draining me of all my energy and causing me to lose my sense of purpose and inspiration. I lacked courage, perspective, and resilience and this left me feeling empty, isolated and with no sense of fulfillment. I wasn't making time for me and I became more stressed about being stressed.


I had lost my direction and my students deserved better. This was no place for a teacher to be and I had to take a break to face the dark clouds in my life.


3 years later...


I am now the proud and inspiring retreat leader and founder of Smile Teachers.

Ready to take you on a journey in the South West!
