Do you listen to podcasts? I know from talking to teachers that many of us are struggling with work-life balance. Ellen at Self-Care for Teachers hosts the Teacher Wellbeing podcast. She interviewed me for Episode 5 in Season 3. Ellen and I talk about balancing family and work, and letting go of ‘mother guilt’; getting a good night’s sleep; and how I aim for work-life satisfaction (because well… what is balance?).
Ellen is a huge fan of Teachers Thriving magazine. We go back to how it started and talk about some of the stories from the Introductory Issue.
I highly recommend subscribing to the Teacher Wellbeing podcast. Listen to it on your commute to work and it will lighten your day, or while you exercise to put a spring in your step. It’s good for the body and soul.
