Weather is warm.  The classroom is energized.  Students are anxious.  Teachers are weary. 

Breathe teachers.  We are almost at the end of the year.  In midst of your exhausting run to the finish line, make sure you take time for yourself and significant others.

Quick pick-me ups:

  • Sit in the sun (especially important for us in the NW)
  • Read an article (not related to education)
  • Call or email an old friend
  • Shop for a gift for a friend
  • Eat ice cream
  • Walk in a park
