Heavy Workloads, Long Workdays, not enough TIME, emotional strain, crippling pressure to do it ALL ... and NO Work/Life Balance
"Did I make the right choice?"
"Am I cut out for this?"
"Can I really last for 25 years?"
"Is THIS worth it?"
It hurts. You worked so hard to get to this place. You went to school. You studied. You survived Student Teaching. And along the way, you met some incredible teachers and students who made you realize, "YES. YES I CAN!"
I'm sure you've realized it by now, but just because you're a teacher, doesn't mean the students in your class will automatically LISTEN to you ... and actually learn something. Right?
So how can you set them up for LEARNING?
Help them get into the "Learning Mode"?
Because your students NEED connection and belonging to be in the Learning Zone, the place where their brains are able to retain and process information.
And listen, I totally get it.
You may be thinking... 'But HOW? I can't even figure out how to submit my lesson plans on time and get my grading done... is this ANOTHER thing I have to do??? UGH"
Your "okay-ness" directly affects how safe your students feel. It impacts their comfort level in taking RISKS, in trying NEW things, in sharing ideas... and the real learning happens when students are CONNECTED and engaged in their learning. They have to be active participants in the whole process. And to get this buy-in from them, YOU have to set the tone.
And guess what...
The tools you need are right HERE.
