Tired? Burning out? Missing your family and free time?
As teachers, it’s not uncommon but often expected, for us to give up our personal time to attend to school-related tasks. This could be anything from the photocopying you stay late to do on a Friday night, to the Saturday you give up with your family to get that marking and/or planning done for the next week. Often we as teachers will work ourselves to the bone under unrealistic expectations for ourselves to get this work done quickly while still keeping up a high level of engagement with our students. However, something has to give, and often it’s our own health and family that end up suffering. Remember: working harder does not make you a better teacher!
This week, join Patti as she dishes out her top 5 tips to help keep your lesson planning workload under control, while still keeping the lessons engaging, and reclaim those after work hours for you and your family!
