Ep 89: Teacher Wellbeing & Improving Workplace Culture

It’s time to prioritise the health, happiness and wellbeing of educators.

In this insightful episode, Meg Durham speaks with Amy Green, author of the book ‘Teacher Wellbeing: A Real Conversation for Teachers and Leaders.’ A thought leader in improving workplace culture and wellbeing, Amy brings a fresh approach to this important topic.

Together, they discuss the importance of engaging in real conversations, common mistakes in teacher wellbeing, the power of taking radical responsibility, and more. If you’re an educator looking to prioritise your wellbeing and create positive change in your school, this episode is a must-listen. Join Meg and Amy as they inspire and empower you to teach well and be well.

In this conversation we discuss

▫️ Why engaging in real conversations matter.

▫️ The common mistakes that schools make.

▫️ The power of taking radical responsibility.

▫️ And so much more…

You can quote us on that…

“When you’re in that space of, ‘it’s not me, it’s the system’s fault, it can never change’, you’re disempowering yourself to be able to do anything.”

Amy Green

“There is a significant amount of power, control and autonomy that individuals have and schools have as a whole. And we’re not leveraging that.”

Amy Green

“If I was to make decisions through the lens of what is best for all people with the resources we have, what decisions might be different?”
