There is nothing like teacher tired.
I see it on the faces of my colleagues every day at the end of the school day in our hybrid face to face model. I see it on my wife’s face when I come home after she is still working on teaching virtually.
Being tired is one thing, but unless you are a teacher, you don’t know what teacher tired really is.
We can see how much this school year is already draining out of educators. Is this pace sustainable? Is this realistic for teachers?
The problem is, we have already answered “yes” to both those questions because that is who we are. We would walk barefoot over hot coals for our students.
But that doesn’t mean it hasn’t been easy for us. During these times of unprecedented workloads and fear for our overall safety, we need to band together even more to help each other through this difficult time.
The popular verse, “Lean on me when you’re not strong, and I’ll be your friend…” should be our rallying cry this year. We NEED each other.
Because of this, we wanted to share a few teacher tips on how to help teacher morale in your building.
Here are some fun blog posts to read that will help you out.
