Is it just me or is it exhausting to be a teacher this year?

Maybe you’ve felt like the demands and expectations are much too high, students are falling behind, or that you’re constantly setting aside your needs before others. It feels like you’re taking a one-way trip straight to to teacher burnout.

Teaching wasn’t supposed to be this way.

In today’s episode, I want to acknowledge and address those feelings that you may have been thinking over the past couple of years (and how they are completely and totally valid).

In this episode, you will learn:

  • What teacher burnout is and how to recognize the signs of burnout
  • How focusing on your true hobbies and passions are important
  • Why prioritizing yourself is a must if you are teaching this year (and every year)
  • How to let things go (despite running out of time)
  • Finding positive support from other colleagues and teachers
  • What to do if the burnout is affecting you more than you can handle
  • My experience with burnout during the pandemic

Burnout is real. But there are strategies to help alleviate or lessen those feelings. There may not be a one-size-fits-all solution, and we may not be sure when the feelings will go away. But it’s still worth the fight.
