Courage, Love and Laughter to Get Through Pandemics, Teaching and Long Italian Hikes Alike with Jill Tomback – Episode 32

Jill Tomback talks about being a grade school teacher during the pandemic, keeping kids engaged, loving communication and more.

The Feel Good Factor. Episode 32. Three women sitting next to each other at an outdoor restaurant table and smiling at the camera. Hillside and water scenery in the background. Courage, Love and Laughter to Get Through Pandemic, Teaching and Long Italian Hikes Alike with Jill Tomback.

You know you’re talking with an elementary school teacher when she says, “pardon my language” and, while you brace for colourful expletives, follows up with “stupid” or “sucks” instead. LOL Jill Tomback shares her experience of being a teacher during the pandemic.

In this easy, fun, free flowing conversation, Jill and I discuss:

  • Keeping kids engaged during the lockdown
  • Pandemic life in LA and India
  • The importance of honest, loving communication
  • Why we shouldn’t be watching the news
  • Our most memorable day of adventure, exhaustion and fabulous food from the Food Heals retreat in Italy (where we met)
  • And so much more…

I hope you enjoy this interview on my podcast as much as I did!

“You know, whenever you’re going through something hard in life, I mean anyone going through whatever is hard for them, in the moment it feels impossible. But when it’s over you almost just forget about how hard it was, because it’s over and you move on. Then, when you’re faced with something new that’s difficult and you’re like, ‘ugh, this is so awful’, you can think back to the last time you felt that way. And you can remember that you got through it and you were fine…Then you can do anything.”
