Listen to it on Apple Podcasts or Spotify.

Having been both a language teacher and now a language teacher coach, I’ve come to realise that teachers absolutely thrive on connecting with each other. That’s why I’m excited to have invited Teresa Bestwick, the co-founder of the TEFL Development Hub, to join me in discussing the importance of building and fostering communities for language teachers.

In episode 120 of the Get Richer Teacher podcast, we delve into:

  • The sense of isolation experienced by teachers, especially those engaged in freelance online work.
  • The necessity for providing safe spaces where teachers can openly discuss their experiences and confront challenges.
  • Three essential factors for successfully building and maintaining a thriving community.

Be sure to tune in to the episode, and if you’re looking to connect with fellow ELT professionals, don’t hesitate to join Teresa’s community on Facebook.

Hey, I’m Ola!

For the last 2 years I have been helping language teachers like you build online brands, connect with their perfect students and make more money. I used to be a teacher, a teacher trainer and even ran my own language school in the past, but I am now focused on coaching teachers full-time (and I love it!) So far I have helped over 400 language educators from all over the world and my mission is to see the world where teachers thrive, enjoy the hell out of life and their job and have a great impact on their students lives (without burnout or selling their souls).
