Teachers are incredible! We do so much for others, we juggle with so many things, we tame bureaucracy beasts every day in order to reach the kids we need.
Beyond the stress, beyond the politics, beyond the low pay, beyond the teacher burn out rate,we still manage to keep the profession going!
This is why teachers deserve a place where they can think about themselves and step back to cherish what they have achieved!
This time of year is when teachers need to take care of themselves! Burn out is a real problem and we want you, wonderful teacher, to remain in the profession.
For awhile I have been been working on a project writing about handling frustrations in the teaching profession. I would love if you could help me develop it further. It may turn into a book or short booklet for teachers. The main idea behind it is to provide support to teachers and help them withstand the demands of the profession especially at the end of the school year when teacher experience most stress.
I would like to send the first 10 pages of the book to as many teachers who are currently in the filed as possible. I would be delighted if you would read it for your own pleasure. The beginning of the book will ask you to find the positive in your practice through a 2minute a day activity. This is not a sales pitch or a scam. I would love to hear your feedback on what you think, how it has worked for you. You will not receive a second email asking you to buy the book for $! Your help will be invaluable for continuing the project with success. If you wish, I will also be happy to publish your experiences on my blog at a later point.
