BURNED-IN Teacher: A Movement Starting with YOU

BIT has been a huge part of my life for about two years. Over the past eight weeks, I have been sharing with you the surface of what BURNED-IN actually stands for.

Questions to Ask Yourself
Have I done any of these things for MYSELF lately?
Should I read the blog posts and/or do research on these ideas?
What are my next best steps?
How might I begin this journey?
The BURNED-IN Movement really does start with YOU.
Talk to others about your feelings with people you trust. Tell them what you feel you may need to do about them. DON'T SHAME YOURSELF FOR BEING IN THIS PLACE. Trust me, you have many friends (who you have never met) riding on this struggle bus with you. Let me help you get off of it, one step at a time.
TAKE A DEEP BREATH. YOU ARE YOUR OWN HERO. LET'S DO THIS TOGETHER!
