Teacher Tired!

Teaching is an intense career. There are hundreds of details of which to keep track. If you teach elementary school, you have 20 + students to get to know, age-appropriate levels of mastery in 5, 6, or more subjects to teach them, their parents to communicate with, the preparation of your lessons, worksheets and assessments to grade, state guidelines to know and follow, advanced students to challenge, confused students to remediate, meetings to sit in on, workshops to attend, and lesson plans to submit to the office. And children to worry about while not at school.

If you teach in middle or high school, you have hundreds of students during the day to get to know, hundreds of papers to grade, assessments to write, lessons to prepare, state guidelines to know and follow, advanced students to challenge, confused students to remediate, meetings to sit in on, workshops to attend, and lesson plans to submit to the office. And children to worry about while not at school.

This is teacher tired, emotionally, mentally, and physically.

I want to try to help, so here are a few thoughts (maybe they’re obvious):

  1. Make three “Things-To-Do lists organized by the date on which they must be completed, this could be an app on your phone:
  • Things that must be done today
  • Things that must be dopne this week
  • Things that are long term

2. Keep a calendar of all meetings and conferences in one place, again this could be on your computer or an app, and set up a reminder alarm for these.

3. Here is a free ebook with 101 ways to increase your productivity and maybe reduce your stress just a little (https://bit.ly/325iuZP).
