JACK OF ALL TRADES. . .
Master of none?
Do you ever feel this way as an elementary teacher?
By design, elementary educators are generalists who perform a whole slew of tasks not necessarily in their job titles.
The never-ending to-do list that includes grading papers and all of the other administrative stuff dealt with on the daily seems to multiply no matter how many items you check off as done.
It can get so overwhelming!
And as an educator, a frustrating aspect is that you probably do all of these things with a nod and a smile.
You’re yearning. . . itching. . . screaming. . . for some way to ease the burden – even just a little.
Is this really what you signed up for?
You want to teach kids. That’s your purpose.
There are a million other things vying for your attention.
And those things, no matter how “seemingly” small they appear to outsiders, are major energy-zappers, especially mentally!
You know you’re a good teacher, but on a bad day, you sometimes doubt yourself.
“Am I good enough?”
“Am I strong enough to keep at this?”
Every now and then, you think about quitting teaching for good.
“No way! This is what I love to do – teach kids!”, you say to yourself.
But you also think (maybe shamefully)…
“How in the hell am I going to make it another 5, 10, or 20 years in this profession considering all the emotional and physical stress I experience year after year?”
So what do you do?
What you need is a game plan ~ a way to do things smarter!
REDUCE THE NOISE. . .
Yes indeed, I’ve been there!
Fifteen years of life-changing experiences in education (the successes and failures) have taught me a thing or two about making it work.
But I understand…
At times, you feel like a hamster spinning and spinning on that darn wheel.
You’re moving, but are you really going anywhere?
You’re exhausted yet still in the same place.
BUT GUESS WHAT?
You can stay afloat.
And you don’t have to do it all “by the book” as recommended by the “experts”.
Here’s What I Know…
Teachers need to work smarter by putting themselves first plus streamlining tasks/ routines!
- Create key processes and systems that work with and for you.
- Focus on the essentials.
- Optimize your efficiency.
- Learn to say NO!
