Amanda shares some of her challenges with students who are often feeling left behind or overlooked. The ESE population is substantial, and many students struggle with ADHD and or Anxiety. We as listeners, get a brief look at a challenging situation.

09: One Tired Teacher: Finding Your People The Power of Co-Workers

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.

06: One Tired Teacher: Self-Care for Educators

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!
