A sneak peek inside the episode:

“Talking about wellbeing, when we talk about social and emotional, not just the physical one, the social and emotional wellbeing is not determined by how things change around you, but it is actually impacted by how the things shift within you. Another thing I really want educators and adults to understand is that not every adult is an educator just because they are older than kids. An educator is someone who is sharing knowledge at that very moment, and it could be a child. Not every adult is an educator and not every educator is an adult.”
