Have you noticed how many teachers are leaving the profession lately?
It’s incredibly disheartening to see how many are leaving, but I don’t blame them! They are burned out and demoralized. If this sounds like you, you’re in the right place.
I know many of us are just counting down until break or may not even want to go back next year, so in this episode of Real Teacher Talk, I am sharing six steps that you can use in your life right now if you are dealing with burnout.
To understand this issue, we have to get clear on what burnout is and what demoralization is. They are two different things, but they both have to do with work dissatisfaction and are very real issues that need to be addressed.
I know you’re doing your very, very best and you deserve to be treated with respect and paid appropriately for all of your hard work. The goal of this episode is to help you feel powerful and like you have a voice when things feel out of control. I want you to be supported and heard and feel like you have some semblance of work-life balance.
In Today’s Episode We Discuss:
- The difference between burnout and demoralization
- The change in education in the recent years
- The benefits of maintaining your life outside of work
- How to make your voice heard
- Tips for finding perspective
- How to take your power back
- Why it’s okay to leave if you are unhappy
- Tips for time management
I hope this episode inspires you to try out some of these things and get your joy back for teaching! Life is too short to spend all of your time doing something you don’t love. You deserve better and your family deserves better. I also hope these tips help give you some guidance on your next steps whether that means working on time management, getting your voice heard, or finding something else you’re passionate about if that’s what feels right for you.
If you are interested in learning more about time management so that you can better organize your life at work and leave every day at contract time so that you can feel more satisfied and balanced in your life, make sure you join the waitlist for my free training 3 PM Teacher. It only happens once a year and it’s coming up this summer. I hope to see you there!
