Just as it was true in my last episode, it’s true here too. These 5 habits are not rocket science, not earth shattering, but they are slightly different from other tips I’ve seen because they aren’t just for teachers, and they also aren’t just...
**Holy cow guys this is a long one, but, I have to admit, I really really loved recording this. So, if you have to listen in chunks, that’s the beauty of a podcast, just pick right back up where you left off and it even rewinds it a few seconds for you when you’re able to click play again.
Here’s to a more intentional 2023, and a glimpse into my year-end reflection and planning process. I hope you find it helpful.
As promised, here is a link to that year-at-a-glance calendar I grabbed on Canva - it’s now a template you can use.

I have all the love for my people - and my people are teachers. They are educators through and through, and I love them. But I also have tough love for you today. And I’ll say that a dose of tough love might not be exactly what you want today. Heck, it might not be what you need, because you really need an open ear to vent to. And that’s healthy as well, but unfortunately, on this platform I can’t be that listening ear, so I encourage you to go and find it. We have our Sustainable Teacher Podcast private community on Facebook that you are welcome to join and find a safe place to vent and express your concerns. Be sure to...
I recently was driving in the car sans children so it was very peaceful and serene. Not to say my time in the car with my three boys isn’t wonderful - it’s just a louder version of wonderful where I don’t get to sit in quiet or do what I ended up doing on this particular drive which is downloading a book that I forgot I had waiting for me on Audible and click play.
I’m going to recommend this particular book to you in this episode so I will talk more about it later, but for now I need to share how the book struck me in a way I was not anticipating.
So I’m driving along and I’m listening in as the author tells a story and brings wisdom to something I had been feeling for most of my life, and she gave such clarity I didn’t know I needed. I was even brought to tears - not tears of sorrow necessarily but tears of feeling seen in what I thought was just all in my head.
And the book, so aptly named, is Jennie Allen’s Get...
