Teacher Pep Talk: 4 Teacher Burnout Habits NOT to Bring into 2023 (Ep. 32)

Dec 27, 2022

Every new year, teachers (people, in general) want to change EVERYTHING. They want to make a list of goals or new years resolutions so that they can be better than ever before. Am I right? What if I told you that teachers have some pretty surprising habits that are leading to burnout.

And no, I'm not telling you to set a resolution to lose 30 pounds before summer. I am all about sustainability here, so I'm not telling you to set unrealistic expectations on yourself. Instead, in this episode, I am chatting about the four major teacher burnout habits NOT to bring into 2023. And Number Four is a REAL doozy!

These pep talk style episodes are my attempt to create a more authentic way for you to connect with me, for you to feel like you have support on your hardest days (even if and ESPECIALLY if you don't have that in your community or schools).   I also created this style in an effort to show you that you are not alone.  We are in this together and YOU ARE a RESILIENT TEACHER!
