What is The Healthy Teacher Project?

Peppi is a primary school teacher in Athens, Greece. Sheโ€™s from Greece but trained to teach in the UK before returning. A teacher for 20 years she still talks about the job with passion and excitement.

Itโ€™s great to get a view on teachersโ€™ health issues from someone outside England. I feel, as teachers, we too often see ourselves as the centre of the educational world โ€“ if we do consider other countries itโ€™s, โ€œcountry X does this, why canโ€™t we,โ€ or โ€œcountry Y does this, Iโ€™m glad Iโ€™m not there.โ€

Peppi talks openly about the sorts of issues we face on a daily basis: workload, reliance on data and the constant need to prioritize. Although she does mention doing the job in 30 degrees requires a siesta after lunch โ€“ not a problem we have in the UK.
