Are you looking forward to the new school year? This is a topic that so many teachers are struggling with right now. School is starting back up and teachers just aren’t looking forward to it because they’re still trying to recover from last year.
If this sounds like you, you’re going to love this episode of Real Teacher Talk. I sat down with my good friend Katie Knight from Teacher To The Core to talk about some things that you can do if you’re feeling like this so you can go from just surviving your job as a teacher to actually thriving.
Teaching has always been hard, but it feels like it has been a whole new level of hard lately. We have had to learn entirely new ways of teaching, face more demands than ever, handle mean teachers, and so much more. It’s natural that teachers aren’t eager to dive back in.
It doesn’t have to be that way though. There are things that you can do to bring the joy back in teaching so that you can start thriving in the classroom and in your personal life. You are more than just a teacher and you deserve to embrace all those other parts of you, too.
In Today’s Episode We Discuss:
- The ways teaching has changed in the last couple of years
- What to do when you feel stressed or pressured
- Tips for setting boundaries
- Tips for leaning into your team
- How to deal with mean teachers
- Tips for balancing it all using a timer
- Why choosing your attitude makes a difference
- How to be intentional about social media
I hope this episode gave you some inspiration and ideas for having a better year this year so that you can stop dreading school and start truly enjoying it because you deserve it!
