Feeling Good Mini Series: Podcast #3 – Preventing Teacher Burnout

Feeling Good are proud to announce the launch of our podcast mini series. Last week Becky, a teacher of ten years, shared her lived experience of burnout and how she recovered from it. In podcast #3 ‘Preventing Teacher Burnout’, Becky and Serena continue their conversation. In this episode, Becky offers ways in which we can help ourselves prevent burnout. Becky speaks from a teacher’s perspective with some specific tips, for example, in managing marking workloads, however a lot of the tips discussed can be relevant to other work industries too. This is really important considering the high prevalence of burnout across the UK.
