Overwhelmed

Overwhelmed is almost an understatement. So, so much to do. Teaching K is exhausting (albeit rewarding) in and of itself, but add in ceaseless demands from admin, "new ideas" from district people, loads of after school events. It's never enough. I'm exhausted already and we've only been in school a month!

Teaching has turned into an exhausting profession. My thoughts are with you.

The first month is the hardest in terms of exhaustion. Even without a bunch of outside stuff it is exhausting!

I am glad that we can't be required to go to a bunch of outside stuff. Even though we aren't required, when others do go to them, you can feel the pressure to do it, too. Maybe someone needs to start speaking up for the staff?

Things just for you. You must make time for yourself.

Dinner out with friends

Massage

Take a walk

Buy yourself flowers

Light a candle for you

Count your blessings

Do not try to do everything asked of you by admin. You are a person not a super hero

Leave work at work. Have a home life

Pursue your hobbies
