The culture of the place that you teach impacts you, whether you notice that it does or not. Each school has a vibe - some are welcoming and inspiring, while others are draining and negative. These “vibes” create unwritten expectations that you feel obligated to follow - such as the number of hours you should work on school - no matter how unrealistic they seem.
In this episode, I talk with Naomi Gliva about her journey from being burned out and exhausted to thriving and empowered. She shares how unrealistic cultural norms about time expectations in her school led her to have feelings of exhaustion, overwhelm, and eventually burnout. But that all changed when she decided to make the changes that were best for herself and to set the boundaries she needed. She and I talk about how it’s okay to challenge those unspoken expectations to truly take care of yourself so you can be the best version of yourself and beat the burnout!
Naomi worked as a teacher for over 7 years while living in Denver, teaching mostly kindergarten. She is now transitioned to being a stay-at-home mom, teacher blogger, and Teacher Pay Teacher author full time.
