Siobhan Goffee is co-host of the podcast series and coaching programme for educators, ‘Joyblockers – and how to get rid of them’.
Siobhan talked to us about when teaching can feel like being in a bad relationship. Living off the adrenaline of teaching, being constantly in survival mode, and struggling to admit you are struggling. And she talked about joy, creativity, community: the things that bring us into teaching in the first place but which can be the casualties of toxic productivity. Her answer? Look to take advantage of the tiny moments in school, and listen to your body when it’s telling you it needs something.
