Season 4 Teacher Wellbeing Podcast Episode 6 Teacher Stories Vince

In this episode I share a teacher story from high school teacher and side-hustler Vince. We discuss the importance reflecting on your mistakes and weaknesses, and how you can learn from them to improve the next time around. Vince also shares how useful it was for his teaching career to take a two year break and do something else for a while. We then talk about the power of hobbies and how his side-hustle has not only improved his life but also his experience in the classroom.

You can connect with Vince on LinkedIn or check out his blogs and podcasts about innovation and teaching entrepreneurship over at
