Veteran teacher inspired

I have been a public educator since 1992. I have experienced ups and downs over the years. The Burned In teacher podcast reminds me to get out of my own way. I enjoy listening for new perspectives and ideas. Definitely recommend this podcast. If is worth your time!

scbolin ,

Amazing educator!

I’ve been listening to Amber’s podcast for the past couple of years and her words of wisdom and tools have helped me so much! I always end each episode thinking about strategies or mindset shifts to recover and stay out of burnout. I have a lot of podcasts I follow, but hers is the only one that I am sure to listen to weekly, as I feel like I’m listening to a friend who’s full of such wisdom and would love to teach with her! Amber is so vulnerable, authentic and relatable as she teaches in a primary classroom (as I do too). I have also read her book “Hacking Teacher Burnout” twice, the second time to do the book study during the Summer podcasts and use her study guide. I’m so thankful to have found Amber’s podcast and her inspiration!

Life changing!

I’m not kidding with my title- Amber’s podcast has helped me so so much! I’m 10 years into my teaching career and this past year I had such terrible burnout. My principal even suggested I take time off teaching to recover, but that just wasn’t what I wanted (or what I could afford). I found Amber’s podcast when searching for podcasts about teacher burnout. As soon as I started listening, it felt like being wrapped in a great big hug of support and understanding! I can’t recommend her podcast (and her book!) enough. I’ve listened to so many episodes now and it’s already helped my mindset and mental health so much! Thank you, Amber!
