Are you a teacher struggling to find joy in your job? Do you feel overwhelmed by the never-ending to-do list and burned out by the education system? Hey, I'm with you. I know that feeling. And so does the special guest in today's episode.

This overwhelming to do list that so many teachers struggle with - sometimes, it is put on us by the broken education system and other times, we might be putting tasks on it that just don't make a difference. That's why it's important to differentiate between self-inflicted burnout and the systemic issues within education. In this podcast episode, Jamie Sears sheds light on the "Good Teacher Narrative" that's holding many teachers back and provides her personal definition of what makes a "good teacher". She also shares her insights on the "Marshmallow Effect" and how it relates to teachers and job creep. Don't miss Jamie's number one piece of advice for teachers who think they can't fall back in love with teaching again, and learn how to approach your to-do list with intention and purpose.

Jamie Sears is a fun-loving mom, wife, entrepreneur, and forever teacher at heart. She is also the author of How to Love Teaching Again. After several years in the classroom, her passion to make teaching fun and effective for students and teachers alike inspired her to start Not So Wimpy Teacher.
