Staci Danford is a one of a kind mix of joy and neuroscience. She started her career as a teacher and after 25 years realized she needed a change. Listen as she shares her story and how she pulled herself out of the pit of burnout.
As a teacher she was all in. She was dedicated to making sure her students got the absolute best of her and knew that they had someone in their corner. She always had the most exciting classroom and she spent much of her free time grading and providing feedback.
All of this to the detriment of her home life. Her own kids didn’t get the same attention because she was so focused on her kids at school. After the demise of her marriage she knew she had to make some changes. But what should she do?
A former student of hers gave her the motivation to go back to school and become an educational neuroscientist. She’d always loved everything about the brain and now she studies it!
Her story is amazing and I loved how she came out of burnout a stronger woman. Listen in to hear it all and get your dose of positivity and joy.
“If you don’t start living for you, no one is going to do it for you.” Staci Danford
