I hope you have been enjoying my Teaching Tip Tuesdays series of posts.
Today’s tip – Sometimes You Just Need a Break.
Teachers work really hard. We have so much work to do on a daily basis. That’s why it is important to try and do as much work as we can at school so we can enjoy our time off. This, of course, is easier said than done. I don’t know any teachers who don’t take their work home with them.
But since the Christmas season is approaching I thought I’d lead by example. I will not be bringing any work home with me this break. I am going to work hard this week to plan the first week back in January. I will clean up the classroom and do any marking that needs to be done before I lock up my classroom for this calendar year on Friday.
So I decided that I wouldn’t write another teaching tip for this year either. I was going to take three weeks off and just write an explanation as to why I needed this break. Yet, in so doing, it seems that I have indeed written another tip. Oh well, that’s how it goes I guess.
The New Year will be a great one here at Silent Cacophony. There will be some guest posts written by teachers from all over the globe. If you want to be a part of this project, please write a post and email it to me.
Don’t forget to check the Table of Contents page for all the Teaching Tip Tuesday posts. They are organized by theme there as well. Until then, I wish you all the best this holiday season.
