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.

Thank-you!

I’m not a teacher but as a parent (and a constant student), I wanted to check out this podcast. I was not disappointed, and this pick reminded me of the magic of podcasting. Looking for information about a topic and being given so much more! What Ellen gave me was 54 minutes of truth and passion far beyond teaching and education in Australia. She shared the journey of being an entrepreneur and in particularly the journey of producing a podcast over the past 4 years - the high lights and the low lights. In this instragram age, it can be difficult to discern what really is the truth behind growing a business and by sharing her experiences Ellen gives the listeners valuable insights (many of which could help you to avoid losing money, time and sleep!) but also encouragement. She must be a great teacher and coach – she thinks deeply, is forthright but, like all good teachers, sprinkles the truth with encouragement and hope! Thx, Lz

Thank you

Thank you Ellen for sharing these podcasts on such an important issue! I wish more teachers felt safe to have conversations about the impacts of work on their wellbeing rather than suffering in silence - or quitting!
