  1. Fantastic and interesting listening! Teachers need to do all they can to keep themselves healthy in and out of the classroom and make sure they make enough time for themselves outside of work!

  2. This is such timely information. I am my 5th week of getting a Masters degree in Teaching English, and the subject of discussion this week, was, Teacher Burnout. so I am not only going to read This, I am also going to pass along This Information to the group (about 60,000 people enrolled in This online course). Thank You. Take care.
