FuelEd was founded to equip educators with the tools they need to build these secure attachments. They partner with K-12 schools, education organizations, and educator preparation programs to develop teachers and school leaders into secure attachment figures so that every adult in schools is emotionally intelligent, healthy, and attuned to build secure relationships that drive learning and development.
