I really loved this podcast series about the dire state of the teaching profession and what teachers can actively do about their own situation from the inside. Rather than being filled with toxic positivity homilies, the lack of sugar coating of this very real dilemma is a breath of fresh air.
I listened to them on my daily walks and felt affirmed and supported, not patronised and sidelined. Thank you to you both.
I just listened to the first two podcasts. At the end of the first one, I actually had a few tears; it triggered my memories of losing the joy of headship, the many emotions I went through at that time…but also the gratitude I have for the life I now have which is chockablock full of joy! By the end of episode two, I was copying and pasting the link to most of my coaching clients.
I love your new podcast and I’m excited to share it with my staff. So much for them to reflect on and use practically, Thank you!
