Sometimes, it can feel like your world is “out of control” as a teacher.  It may seem like decisions are being made that you don’t have any say in or that things are happening to you instead of for you  But, you DO have a choice!  You ARE in control! 

In this episode, I talk with Jen Molitor, author of The Happy Teacher Handbook, about her journey in education.  Jen goes deep into her first years of teaching and how her feelings of burnout ultimately lead her to take a break from teaching, with the intention of never going back. But it was her leaning into her power of choice that empowered Jen to make the decisions that were best for her.  Jen talks about the power of choice and how ultimately, it’s your CHOICE to remain burned out or to become burned-in! 

As an educator for 18 years, Jen has enjoyed teaching in the classroom, as a gifted intervention specialist, and more recently as an instructional coach.  Her recent Amazon #1 New Release, The Happy Teacher’s Handbook, shares strategies for inspiring teachers to find a reason to stay and make their impact on the world, one class at a time.

  • See how leaning into those mindset shifts you feel happening can help you make the changes that you need to get you out of burnout. (12:50)
