Are you a teacher that's stressed out by your job? I used to stress out daily about my job, too. It wasn't fun at all coming to work. I wasn't sure if teaching was the right profession for me. Over time that all changed. I developed routines and mindsets that help me get through my day stress free and with a smile on my face. I've been teaching for 10 years and I'm happier now than I've ever been. There's no magic involved; I just put a lot of things into perspective. I've decided to share this process with other stressed out teachers. As a person who has mentored many new teachers, as well as hosted 4 student teachers, I know that these ideologies work. If we, as a teaching community, can be less stressed then we can instead focus our energy on the task at hand: improving the lives of those we teach.
