About Teach Your Heart Out

Meet Our Founder

Meet Lisa!

Teach Your Heart Out was started in 2017 by educators Lisa Dunnigan and Tosha Wright.  They wanted to offer teachers a fun way to get their professional development credits while also learning research based strategies that can be implemented right away in their classrooms. They have had conferences all over the United States and also in the Bahamas and Western Caribbean.

Teach Your Heart Out is committed to curating events, experiences, and products that empower educators everywhere. These women understand how valuable teachers are and the impact they make in the lives of their students.

Through their companies Teach Your Heart Out, The Wright Stuff Chics and The Pink Santa Hat Movement, they are making positive impacts on educators, students, and the future of education.

Can't Miss Events

The Teach Your Heart Out (TYHO) Conference offers valuable  experiences that place the needs of educators and administrators front and center. Expanding into multiple annual events , TYHO has granted thousands of teachers an invigorating space to connect, learn, and share. Despite the grueling hardships and challenges of an unexpected pandemic, 2021 granted a treasured opportunity for TYHO to pivot from in-person events to also offering a virtual experience ending with this Summer’s 2021 TYHO Conference. Teachers, administrators  and education experts from across the nation will unite to attend our TYHO conference live in Atlanta, GA, and virtually, from the comfort of their own homes.
