Finding co-workers who have your back and that you trust and care about like family can be an exceptional experience. I know that I have been fortunate to have found my tribe through the years. I started off with an excellent example of teamwork when I was a young teacher in 1997. That sense of team continued to grow through most of my career. I think it has a lot to do with the leadership on the team and the leadership from the top.
When you are teaching, you need co-workers to feel connected and sometimes just to survive. I know for me that my team can make or break a school year. I’ve had a variety of groups. Fortunately, the majority of my career was spent with the very best people by my side. For that, I am eternally grateful.
Self-care is one of those topics that we know is so important for our mental well being, yet we feel like we never have enough time. It’s kind of like I need gas in my car, but I don’t have time to stop! Eventually, we run out, and we are left stranded on the side of the road.
So I thought this week was crucial to talk about how you can give yourself a refill over the winter break. Yes, I know all the holiday hoopla is occurring, and winter break is not usually the best of the breaks. But how about taking a different approach this year?
Take care of yourself in the last few days of 2018 and make 2019 a better year for you! Keep being your beautiful self.
Sweet dreams, and sleep tight!
