Ep 76: How We Cut Our Stress Levels in HALF During the School Year

Do you want to cut down on time spent planning, prepping, and stressing this school year? 

And if you could, I want you to take a moment to imagine how you could better use your time. What else could you accomplish? How much better would you feel each day?  

Teaching is, without a doubt, a challenging job. There’s a lot to it, and, at times, it can be overwhelming. The problem we see most teachers experience is that they consistently feel behind. And even if they aren’t behind, they feel as though they are furiously treading water each day, just barely managing to stay afloat as they juggle grading, planning, copying, organizing, and contacting parents. Can you relate? Because we were certainly in that position, too, during our first few years of teaching. And honestly, it was miserable! 

Thankfully, over the years, we found that a little preparation goes a long way. In fact, spending just a few hours now could change your ENTIRE year. Listen to this episode to hear why we strongly encourage you to create a scope and sequence for your year. Plus, hear how we scheduled different units into our own! Whether you use our timing, or adjust and do what works for you, creating a scope and sequence for your school year today will completely change the way you teach all year long. 

Give it a try, and tell us how it goes!
