In this episode, we are joined by Justin Ashley, author of The Balanced Teacher Path. In addition to being a published author, Justin is a teacher, work-life balance coach, and motivational speaker from Charlotte, North Carolina. He is the only teacher to ever win 2 state titles--the North Carolina History Teacher of the Year and North Carolina Social Studies Teacher of the Year--in the same year.
We discovered Justin Ashley in this article: He was a classroom star. But CMS teacher’s success masked depression, addiction and just knew we had to have him join us on the podcast to help us learn from his journey and be able to support our teachers to prevent them from burnout. If you’re ready to inject more joy into your personal life, get more meaning from your job, strengthen your body and mind, and break free financially then you will want to listen to him on the podcast and read his book!
Throughout the podcast, Justin shares many pearls of wisdom for our listeners. In order to live the balanced teacher life, Justin recommends 30 minutes of exercise a day, something awesome in every class that students will talk about (purple cow!), and most importantly... family time.
