Well, summer vacation is over and the new school year has begun! As you prep your classrooms, attend the professional developments that we all love, and make the final tweaks to your first lesson, my fellow educators, do not forget about YOU! Please keep your mental, physical, and emotional health in mind. We cannot help the children if we do not help ourselves first.
Take this weekend to relax. Get your nails done, have a glass of wine, go to the movies! I am speaking another successful year into your lives. May you survive the faculty meetings, parent conferences, and little Johnny who just refuses to follow instructions. We are in this together! If you are not a teacher, but you know one, send them an encouraging message every once in a while. We need it!
