stress-busting tips for teachers.

Is it just me or this the hardest time of the school year?  No major holidays to celebrate.  {which means no days off.}  Kids are comfortable enough with you & each other that they start to test the boundaries.  Assessments, assessments, assessments to track growth.  {not to mention the paperwork, paperwork, paperwork that goes with it.}

On top of it, there's the mound of changes that have been made in education in the past few years.  {yeah, that's a whole can of worms that I'm not opening today!}  Sometimes it feels like there's a new initiative, law or change of some sort every time we turn around.

I created this list of stress-busters for teachers.  So grab a cup of coffee, some hot chocolate or a glass of wine {hey, no judgement here}, take a deep breath and relax.  Then pin, print or put this list somewhere to refresh your mind & remind yourself how valuable you are on those long days.

Keep loving on those kiddos & rolling with the punches.  You can do this.  :)


  1. LOVE this! I'm going to print and put it beside my desk! Thanks for the encouragement! :)


  2. I loved it. Even when there is much love in what we do, we need to encourage ourselves at certain times. Thank you!


Thanks for the comments! {like virtual hugs}
