In this episode, I'm joined by Megan Corcoran, a teacher who has recently decided to leave the classroom.
Megan spent over eleven years teaching and leading in alternative schools for young people who have experienced trauma and/or significant disadvantage. During that time, she worked as a school leader in Australia’s largest alternative school. She studied a Masters in Applied Positive Psychology and her teaching practice is trauma-informed and grounded in Wellbeing Science. Megan is also an experienced workshop facilitator, coach and consultant, and co-founder of Teacher's Well, that provides wellbeing communities for teachers and aims to generate teacher-led wellbeing initiatives in schools.
Listen to Megan speak about the importance of slow teaching and building deep connections with colleagues. We'll also discuss the challenges that are driving teachers out of the classroom in droves and the solutions for teacher wellbeing that Megan and her colleagues are offering at Teacher's Well.
