The Healthy Teacher Project

As teachers our health should always be the most important thing, right?

How many times have heard, or yourself said: “I would phone in sick but I have an important lesson to teach tomorrow?”

How often is your sleep, mealtimes or exercise regime affected by your teaching workload?

 

Listen to this post here:

The Healthy Teacher Project is something I’ve been considering for some time. Our health is the most important issue in teaching – by health I mean, happiness, satisfaction, physical health and fitness.

Teaching is a difficult and selfless job – it’s easy to forget about your own needs when what you’re doing means so much.

I have already put a link on my site to all my articles relating to being a teacher and living a healthy lifestyle (click here).

Now, I want to do something more. I’m going to be interviewing as many teachers as possible. Teachers from any part of the world and any rung of the teaching ladder. I want to start a big conversation about the issues stopping us from staying healthy and how we can avoid them.

This is one of the most important conversations in teaching – it’s not about highlighting issues, but sharing solutions, advice and disciplines we can all use to keep us healthier.

It’s not going to be a political conversation – there are enough of those already. It’ll be a guide for people like us, who love their jobs (and everything that it throws at them), to healthily thrive at it.

I’ve already recorded a couple of interviews and they’ll be posted soon – hit the subscribe button or join my mailing list and I’ll let you know when.

Get involved in The Healthy Teacher Project:

In the meantime, if you’re involved in education and teaching, I’d like to talk to you – drop me an e-mail, Luke@LukeRichardson.co.uk.
