The Burned-In Teacher Podcast is all about going from burned-out educator to BURNED-IN human. On this show, I interview teachers who are or have gone through burnout and they share with us what they are doing or have done in the past to beat it. I also interview experts in the field of teacher burnout, education, productivity, happiness, and basically all things BURN IN. There will also be episodes where I share my own experiences and answer questions from listeners and Burned-In Teacher Community Members.
In this episode, Elena shares with us her own story of burnout
as a teacher and then shares ways that we can foster resilience and
fulfillment in our lives after experiencing trauma and/or burnout
in our career.
About the Podcast
I’m Amber Harper, former burned-out teacher turned Teacher Burnout Coach, dedicated to helping other burned-out teachers to grow through their burnout and take their next best steps toward what they want from their career in education and in life.
After an embarrassing emotional breakdown in front of my teacher besties - I knew something needed to change - and that something was ME. I decided that I wasn’t going to settle for burnout as my sentence as a teacher, mom, wife, or friend - and I knew it was going to take WAY more than practicing “conventional self-care” to make the progress I wanted to make. No amount of manicures, bottles of wine, or bubble baths was going to save this girl...
Fast forward to a few years later and I’ve used everything I’ve learned about teacher burnout and personal development to write a book, build a course, and lead a community of BURNED-IN Teachers who refuse to settle for a life of burnout as their reality.
I’ve used my burnout as an opportunity to become an active participant in my life- in the classroom and here on the mic - using all that I’ve learned to teach kids and serve teachers… and you can do the same!
Ready to get started? The Burned-In Teacher Podcast is one part burnout and all other parts action, inspiration, and support to help you grow through your burnout and live a happier, more fulfilled career and life.
So take a deep breath, my friend, because you’re about to take your next, best step to becoming a BURNED-IN Teacher.
