About the Project
A frazzled teacher is defined as a breakdown in the relation between thought, emotion, and behavior, leading to faulty perception, inappropriate feelings, withdrawal from reality, and a sense of mental fragmentation. Teachers struggle with the breakdown between thought, emotion, perception, and reality every day. Join us as we explore deep aspects of the profession that builds all others.

Through these experiences, many teachers, administrators, and community stakeholders voiced many different praises and concerns for the teaching profession.

EP 1 - Mental Health and Teaching with Dr. Jerry Wilde
EP 2 - Parents, People, and Partnerships with John & Katie Lash
EP 3 - Technology is Making us Crazy with Dr. Justin Hodgson
EP 4 - Why are Teachers Leaving with Leena Marie Saleh
EP 5 - Crying in Preschool with Dr. Denice Honaker
EP 6 - Elementary Emotions
EP 7 - Middle School Milestones
EP 8 - High School Hysteria
EP 9 - Educational Equity with Dr. Ruby Payne
EP 10 - Growing in 2022-2023 with
