During this episode, Franchesca Warren talks with The Educator's Room writer, Whitney Kaulbach as she discusses how her journey to self-care took her to teaching in The Dominican Republic. For the past couple of weeks, we've discussed the need for teachers to not only advocate for self-care but to understand that teachers must be taken care of as a whole. The Whole Teacher Movement is defined as the need for every teacher, in each school, in each of our communities deserves to be healthy, safe, engaged, supported and challenged.

So Whitney followed her heart and in August she began her journey of teaching overseas. In this interview you will learn about:
- the need to practice teacher self-care
- how her family of three transitioned to the Dominican Republic
- why it took her two years to find the right school
- the main difference between education in the United States to the Caribbean
- how she "tied up loose ends" with her home district of twenty years
In addition, at the end of the podcast, we discuss our Whole Teacher conference- a conference that WILL NOT discuss anything dealing with instruction and curriculum but will connect teachers to what they want to learn about.
