Description

Doubt, discouragement, and disillusionment: as education professionals, most of us have experienced these emotions at one time or another.


Deep in those periods of adversity, it can be tempting to only see the success stories. The victories. The stories of achievement and accomplishment. And we can forget that others have faced their demons, too.


With that in mind, here are ten stories of adversity from great educators and guests of the Teachers on Fire podcast. They’ve faced burnout, depression, and everything in between, and they’ve found ways to survive, thrive, and overcome.


You can, too.


This piece features stories of adversity from these great educators:


Kellie Bahri


Julia Fliss


Andrew Canle


Marisa Thompson


Dr. Christine Ho Younghusband


Jonathan Alsheimer


Juli Ross-Kleinmann


Andrew Arevalo


Tiffany Ott


Dr. Will Deyamport
