I love teacher-self care. In fact in episode 3 I talk about a bunch of ways you can fit it into your school day. Today we are taking it to the next level. Self-growth is for the teacher and person with long term vision. Discover 5 ways to promote self-growth to fortify and move toward a thriving you.
If you’re like me I try to do too many things at once. Then I grow frustrated and give up. Today I want to challenge you to pull back on the reins and slow yourself down. Consider each idea and choose the one that tugs at your heart. One…. only one.
Today in the Rockin' This Teacher Thing Podcast we talk about self-growth. There’s a lot of talk about teacher self-care and I’m all for taking care of yourself. In fact I did a podcast episode about teacher self-care back in February. However, I want to step out of that quick fix mindset and think longer term.
This is for the long haul. Knowing that as teachers we have to remember it’s a marathon not a sprint. These self-growth journeys are going to build in us what it takes to run our own race and win.
Here are the 5 topics covered.
