The Teach On, Teach Strong Podcast is all about providing FREE personal development for teachers!
Firstly let's put this out there:
I am not a guru. I am not a life coach. I AM A TEACHER just like you - sharing lessons I am learning in my teaching journey.
Why I started this podcast: Success can be broken down into 20% skill and 80% mindset. We have plenty of support for professional development (20% skill) but I've found that support for personal development (80% mindset), is lacking for us teachers - UNTIL NOW!
This podcast is a movement I've started to support teachers, and my sole aim is to help you succeed in teaching by developing your personal mindset, so you can be the best teacher you can be!
Tune in every Sunday and Wednesday, and listen to a fellow teacher, who still teaches full time just like you, share with you free personal development tools to enable you to teach on and teach strong every day, and continue to make a difference to the lives of young children.
