In this episode, Jenn David-Lang of The Main Idea and I talk with Morgane Michael about her new book From Burnt Out to Fired Up: Reigniting Your Passion for Teaching. This was another one of those conversations that flew by. I feel like we could have talked for hours. We get into Morgane’s research-based approach to this important topic. She shares real and effective strategies for educators to manage their own self care in a way that makes sense. Morgane also has a podcast that I encourage you to check out, KindSight 101, where she interviews “world renowned educational leaders about the mobilizing power of kindness.”

Jenn has done a Main Idea summary of Morgane’s book, and If you would like a copy, you can email her at Jenn@TheMainIdea.net. Additionally, Solution Tree Press, the publisher of Morgane’s book, has compiled and curated a set of Wellness Solutions for Educators that is definitely worth a look.
