Attacking those Winter Doldrums

January 27, 2012

For schools who follow a traditional semester calendar, many of you are completing first semester which means grading and planning for the final ½ of the year. Some of you may be experiencing stress, gray winter days, and students who need support with engagement and motivation.

Try to keep everything in perspective. Stay organized so that you do not become overwhelmed. Plan instruction to meet the needs of your students and remember to take care of your needs. Find a quiet time to relax and reflect or spend time with family and friends. Surround yourself with positivity. Remember the power of a smile. Teachers like students have lives outside the classroom.

Below are some resources to support both you and your students to spice up the remaining semester.

Make it a good day.
