Work life balance: Can we get it

Taboo Breaks #6

In this podcast experienced educators discuss the challenges related to work-life balance. Can we as educators get it? 

This podcast is part of the Taboo Breaks series. The idea behind the name Taboo Breaks is to provide another narrative, an alternative viewpoint, a chance to flip the script and change the way we are socialized/encouraged to think--or not think--about something. We want to be critical of the notion that some topics are taboo or we are otherwise silenced about, while giving real stories and alternative ways of thinking through what is happening. We are not trying to provide definitive answers, but give people permission to think about or try something differently.

Taboo Breaks series

Taboo Breaks is a set of topics/resources for teachers. The resources are designed for personal use or as a discussion starting point for staff meetings.

  1. The good teacher and the bad teacher: Myths and legends
  2. Stress: The good, the bad and the ugly
  3. Secondary traumatic stress: When the teacher gets triggered: Staying present
  4. Noticing but not knowing: What do I say?
  5. What do I do? Suicide prevention
  6. Work life balance: Can we get it?
  7. Professional relationships and roles

Why we’re recommending this resource:

  • Accuracy of information: well-researched, appropriately cited, and well written / organized  
  • Authority: author is identifiable and has related qualifications and/or credentials / affiliated with a reputable institution
  • Objectivity: minimal to no biases or affiliations with a company selling products of promoting a questionable agenda.
