“We’re all doing the best we can with where we are” is something that I say quite often when I talk with teachers who are struggling with burnout, but right now, that’s just not enough. We as teachers, and the world even, are going through some tough stuff, and it’s okay to say that this sucks. But it’s not okay for you to feel undervalued, unappreciated, or invisible. Now, more than ever it’s important for you to be seen, and for your frustrations and stories to be heard.
In this episode, I simply want you to know that you ARE seen and heard. I get honest about the fact that it's really hard to know what to say when things are as hard as they are. I want to help, give advice, and support all teachers, everywhere but it's hard to know what to say when so much is happening on a weekly, daily, and hourly basis right now. So, I will simply say, I see you. I hear you. You matter.
