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.

Necessary

I’m only 3 episodes in, and I already believe this podcast is necessary listening for all teachers, both early career and experienced. Please! For you, and your students, listen to this podcast. It’s Australian, it’s honest, it’s practical and it’s so encouraging. It really shows you two important things: “you are not alone” and “how to care for yourself”.

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.
