Teacher Burnout Prevention is one of the most talked about topics in my DMs at the moment.  We talked in previous episodes about how important it is for teachers to simplify their workload so they are able to achieve work-life balance and reduce stress.  Not to mention, time is one of the things teachers never have enough of, which is why I invited Jen Manly to the podcast to share her GOLDEN NUGGETS of tips for teachers!
