“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. 

 

CALL TO ACTION: THINGS YOU CAN DO TOMORROW 

 

  • Stop and take a breath. I get it that there’s a lot going on right now, but you need to make sure that you have time in your day to stop and just be present in the moment.  
  • "Feel all the feels" to stop the stress cycle. Right now, it’s easy to push down all the things that you are feeling by staying busy.  This will give you the illusion that you are okay when you really aren’t. 
  • Reach out for help and support.  You can’t do this all alone, there is just too much.  Make sure that you reach out for help when you need it.  Not really sure who to talk to? Post your question and/or story to the Facebook Community.
