We hear from so many teachers that batch planning “just isn’t their style,” or that they “don’t have the time to plan for tomorrow, let alone the next month!” We get it; batch planning is definitely a commitment. But do you know what we also hear? We hear that teachers are stressed out, overwhelmed, and burning the candle at both ends.
We are big believers that nothing in life will change unless you make a change, and if you know that there has to be a better way to manage your school stress and prepare for each day, this episode is for you.
Today, EB team member and full-time teacher, Kara Wojick, shares her experience both resisting batch planning and giving it a try.
