Happy, healthy people are more effective teachers and more productive members of society. Yet, an increasing number of teachers are suffering stress-related illness and burnout. Some of these educators struggle through at a reduced capacity, but quite a lot just leave the profession altogether. Many educators put everyone else's health and happiness before their own, because they just want to make a difference. However, it backfires because the external expectations and demands of the job keep increasing regardless of the dwindling reserves of teachers. This podcast aims to facilitate and contribute to the conversation about teacher wellbeing, positive schools and burnout prevention, to inspire and empower educators of all kinds to take back control of their health and happiness by being proactive about their wellbeing, and to give teachers permission to put themselves first, so that they can go on making a difference long into the future.

Excellent podcast for teachers

Thank you for your podcast, Ellen. "Teacher Wellbeing" is such an important topic. I've just found your podcast and started listening. It was helpful hearing your story and you share amazing wisdom in each episode. I look forward to catching up on all the seasons!

Relevant and practical

This podcast has saved me. Thank you! I love the teacher stories and the practical advice within. The episode on burnout was very helpful also. Highly recommended for stressed, anxious and tired teachers everywhere.

Every episode expands my thinking and encourages me to be my best self!

After binge listening to the first two seasons on a road trip, I now start many of my school days listening to Ellen as she shares her infectious and inspiring passion for teacher wellbeing. Knowledgable guests and useful, realistic content make this a podcast to add to your favourites. I find myself exclaiming ‘Me too!’ and ‘That’s so true!’ to no one in particular as I listen at home or in the car. Teachers, share this around because in order to care about our job, we need to take care of ourselves. Also, if you have a story to share, reach out to Ellen. I did in Season 3 and my life is richer because of it.
