Teaching is hard. Burnout is real. Why does anyone choose this job anyway? 

We've learned that boundaries, habits, systems, mindset, and surrounding yourself with people that support your growth can transform your experience as an educatior. This podcast is inspired by Jennifer Gonzalez, "If you can find at least one marigold and stay close to them, you will grow. Find more than one and you will positively thrive." 

 

We're on a mission to empower educators to cultivate wellbeing and build resilience to be their best personally, professionally, and in their communities.

Uncovering Our Narratives

Pt. 3 (Gender)

I remember a conversation around the idea of “boys will be boys” and immediately I reflected on my experiences with sexual assault, boys feeling as though they can not show their feelings, and girls being told quiet is good.

However, you tell your story and what you share in your story is for you and only you to decide.  The important part is being reflective with yourself and better understanding the experiences that have shaped you into who you are.
