WELCOME TO MY CLASSROOM
TEACHERS, WE NEED TO TALK
Most teachers feel great passion for what they do – it fuels them to do their best work for their students every day (and often after the day is over). The trouble is, too many long, exhausting days can leave even the most passionate teachers running on empty. My experience as a teacher was no exception. Although I loved the job and my students, I faced a serious struggle with burnout – and after watching many of my peers run out of steam
and leave their teaching positions altogether, I decided that it was about time to do things differently.
No matter how low your energy reserves are, it’s never too late or too early to learn a few important lessons about your wellbeing and happiness. With my hard-earned knowledge, experience, and enthusiasm on your side, you’ll have everything you need to enjoy school again.
MEG IS AN EXCELLENT SPEAKER AND PRESENTER, WITH A VERY REALISTIC APPROACH AND OUTLOOK.
“Meg's presentation was engaging and allowed time for reflecting, thinking and sharing. She spoke in a way that was inclusive of all and did not focus solely on teaching staff. Meg gave us a lot of food for thought and the feedback from teaching and non-teaching staff has been extremely positive, with people referencing Meg's words, quotes and anecdotes since her day with us at Santa Maria. Staff were grateful for the opportunity to work with Meg and to be introduced to Meg's podcasts, too.”

MEG’S PASSION FOR WALKING WITH OUR EDUCATORS THROUGH THE CHALLENGES OF CARING FOR OUR WELLBEING WAS OUTSTANDING.
"Her years of experience supporting educators in many different contexts which has given her numerous first hand stories she has lived, gives her an insightful knowledge and understanding of wellbeing in schools, which strengthens her genuine warm connection that inspire educators to want to learn more. Meg’s presentation on wellbeing for our school leaders was engaging, real, impactful, fun and timely for educators who continue to face growing challenges of self-care, as the need for connection and care for young people in schools grows."

MEG PRESENTED TO 70 OF OUR PRIMARY SCHOOL STAFF, INITIATING A STAFF WELLBEING STRATEGY.
"Her ability to provide critical information and facts regarding the topic of wellbeing, through engaging narrative and in a relatable way, is outstanding. Her presentation was dynamic; moving staff through light hearted ownership of our strengths and challenges, into the critical importance of the impact healthy wellbeing practices can have on our personal, professional and relational selves. As a school principal seeking to initiate a whole of staff strategy, I couldn't have asked for the initial presentation to go better."
