Description

Mrs.Frazzled and AWalmartParkingLot from Teacher TikTok are diving into Teacher QuitTok! Teacher Quit "Talk" provides a candid look into why teachers are leaving and what, if anything, could get them back.

Episode Date
Episode 11: Type B Teacher & SEL(ITMBWTWMTSOYC)
2601

Trigger warning: This episode contains content that may be upsetting to some listeners. Discussions contain references sexual assault and harassment.

SEL is the mechanism by which they will murder the souls of your children, apparently. This week is half chatting with Type B about her journey into teaching a specials class devoted to SEL, and half your submissions! But seriously, if anyone knows why SEL is so frightening, please let us know. (To the 4% of our audience which identifies as male: We would never give you the tiny stapler that doesn't open...)

Episode 10: Queer Librarian
3131

Trigger warning: This episode contains content that may be upsetting to some listeners. Discussions contain references to homophobia and hate speech.

This week on Teacher Quit Talk, Frazz and Redacted hear a tale of how the Queer Librarian (formerly Classroom Yogi) endured and overcame a cancellation attempt from a far right troll with an unfortunately large platform. After her community rallies around her, she declares she will not be silenced. A beacon of light in the dark, she reminds us to stand up for others in the face of injustice and hate.

Episode 6: Tamika Quit (And So Can You)
2871

You've been telling us to shut up and talk about transitioning out of teaching and we listened. Career strategist Tamika Chante quit teaching, and now she teaches others to quit teaching! Well, actually, she teaches ex-teachers how to find new jobs.

You didn't know it at the time, but you asked her questions over on @mrs.frazzled! Frazz even timestamped where we answer the questions in the episode. Find a handy reference below:

26:52 "Where do you start? Where do you look for jobs?"

30:53 "What options are there for teachers who want to transition careers? How do our skills translate into other fields?"

39:31 Remote jobs? Working in different time zones?

49:50: "Did you feel guilty leaving education?" How to follow your heart if you want to leave.

You can book a consultation and learn more at Tamika's website: https://beacons.ai/IamTamikaChante
