Staying Positive About Teaching and Supporting Other Teachers/Staff.
At this time of the year it can be a challenge to stay positive about teaching. But, the final stretch is here and it is possible for you and your students to thrive through the final few weeks of the school year. One way for you to remain positive is to support another teacher or staff member who you work with. Think about what may be uplifting for them and make it happen this week (a personal note dropped in their mailbox, a new set of whiteboard markers, an invitation to take a break and have lunch together without distraction...). Think about what also may provide you continued stamina for the remaining weeks and make it happen for yourself (a weekend morning alone, a bubble bath, a walk outside with a friend…). You and your co-workers deserve to take the time for the things that fill you up and allow you to walk into the classroom each day with a renewed sense of energy.
