Teacher burnout is a real problem in education. Some of our guests have regained their passion for the field by changing grade levels or using their TpT store to spark renewed interest in education. Nicole Hoye, an elementary teacher in Canada, took a different path— but one that is sure to inspire others to similarly fall back in love with teaching.
In this episode, Nicole Hoye vulnerably discloses the exact emotions that she was feeling which led her to think that maybe she was no longer the teacher she would want her own child to have—and the wheels this revelation put in motion. Nicole decided to pursue an administrative path at her school, believing that too often teachers need more to be supported than they typically receive from leadership. But Nicole didn’t stop there. She turned a long-time dream into reality: publishing a children’s book.
With a teacher as the main character, the book itself and even the podcast episode serve as important reminders to help teachers keep perspective in this difficult profession and the realization that our students of any age are capable and aware of the unique strengths we bring to the classroom each and every day.
In this episode you’ll hear:
-How to transition from teacher to admin, whether working at the same school or in a new environment
-The biggest misconceptions around the role of admin in your school
-How writing a book could serve as another method of documenting your teaching journey
-The reason a picture book was created with the teacher as the main character
-Why you need to keep your why in mind
-What steps go into publishing a children’s book
