175: Bonus Edition- Interview with Amber Harper

Amber Harper is a Google Certified Educator, Trainer, and Innovator, as well as a Seesaw Ambassador. She is also the founder of www.burnedinteacher.com and creator of Burned-In EdTech Consulting and Teacher Coaching where she has joint her two loves in her career: her love of edtech and innovation in the classroom with her obsession for helping educators who are struggling to find their own passions within the education profession. As a former public elementary school teacher, she promotes the use of technology as a tool for transformation in the classroom, and is obsessed with helping teachers take themselves from burned-out to BURNED-IN! She specializes in technology integration in the classroom and in supporting educators who are struggling to decide what their next best step in on their education journey.


  • The worst anyone can say is “No”
  • All it takes is one small step
  • Teachers are well intentioned about what they do
  • The best teachers I have met … have to be willing to build relationships, get vulnerable and continue to learn and do better
  • Teachers are the best thieves
  • There is no better time than now. If something needs to be changed, there is no sense in holding off
  • It’s unfair to assume that all stories of burnout are the same
  • The best thing you can do as an educator is step away from your job as an educator…have a life outside of teaching
  • I wouldn’t take anything back about my journey, because it has lead me to where I am now
