Elections! Anxiety! Mental Health Professionals! Oh My. This week’s episode offers a closer look at life behind the polished facade of your favorite teacher-turned-podcaster-turned-aspiring Z-list Twitter blue checkmark. In a week where the entire world will be holding their collective breaths as we await the results of the U.S. Presidential election, it’s easy to get spun up and feel all sorts of reasons for mental and emotional distress. So in today’s episode, I decided to let down the proverbial guard and offer just a bit of insight on my own struggles with mental wellness. Please note that I am not a mental health expert nor do I pretend to be one — this podcast is merely shared as an opportunity to offer some personal perspective on how I’ve seen some success (and plenty of setbacks) in my own efforts to become more healthy, centered, and whole.
Recorded in bumper-to-bumper traffic to and from my daily work as a high school instructional coach just outside of Washington D.C., Talk to Mee in the Car is where a brainstorm and a good old-fashioned brain dump collide to help educators hone their skills and become leaner, meaner, 21st century teaching machines. Join me for a quick hitting 11(ish) minute episode every Monday for tips, tricks, and strategies to change the game in your classroom TODAY with high-energy, student-centered teaching that actually works.
Because one size fits all professional development simply doesn’t.
