Abstract: The research aimed to analyze the effectiveness of a training program for K-12 teachers in improving their perceptions of flourishing, job satisfaction, work as meaning, and efficacy, as well as their students' academic performance. The study involved 147 K-12 teachers and 3544 students. A 'quasi-experimental' pretest-posttest with a control group design was adopted. The results showed significant improvements in students' academic performance and in all teacher variables in the experimental group. Targeting interventions towards K-12 educators has immense potential to profoundly influence students' academic growth by increasing their interest and competence in STEM disciplines.
