The Literacy Dive Podcast

May 3, 2021

Lesson planning, parent conferences, endless meetings, and working way beyond contract hours. The job of a teacher is truly never-ending. Feeling underappreciated on top of all of this can really negatively affect your mental state.


I’m here to help you find ways to stay motivated, even when feeling a major lack of appreciation. Rather than relying on others for validation of your hard work, it’s time to take control of your own joy! So, happy Teacher Appreciation Week to all of you incredible teachers today and every day! I’m always cheering you on.


In this episode I share:

  • Actionable tips for staying motivated
  • How to approach conversations with others when you aren’t feeling appreciated
  • Fostering self-confidence even when nobody else is giving you the encouragement you crave
  • Building a workplace culture that prioritizes appreciation
