The school year is winding down. Every teacher's plate is full and overflowing with year end paper work, closing down a classroom, capping student enthusiasm, grading, and all those other last minute year end things.
In the rush and push to get done, please, brave teacher, be good to yourself. Be gentle with yourself. It's ok to go out to eat. It's ok to take time for yourself. (I just took this picture while walking in the woods with my little family.) Savor the moments. Everything will get done when it really needs to be done. It's ok if everything takes a little longer. You're worth it, brave teacher!
