Do you know how sometimes, when you’re super frustrated and frazzled, even the most obvious solution to a problem doesn’t occur to you because you’re just so fixated on the stress of the moment?
We’ve certainly been there (and let’s be real, we’re sometimes still there), but luckily, not when it comes to teaching. After our first few years in the classroom, and spending way too much time in a headspace of overwhelm, we made the conscious decision to shift our energy from thinking about our setbacks to finding solutions. Honestly, it changed everything.
And today on the podcast, we’re going to talk through the most common stressors that teachers experience–everything from last-minute lesson planning to grading burnout–and we’ll give you multiple solutions or strategies for each so that you can focus your time and energy on what WILL work instead of what won’t. You deserve to love your job and have a life outside of teaching. Listen in to today’s episode to learn the simple changes we made that dramatically improved our lives in–and outside–the classroom.
