    Teaching with Joy

    Teaching with Joy

    We came up with 5 tips to keep your teaching day full of joy.
    1.     Give grace & forgiveness to yourself, your students & your co-workers generously.
    We love this quote, "You never really understand a person until you consider things from his point of view. Until you climb into his skin and walk around in it.'" - Atticus Finch from To Kill a Mockingbird 
    2.     Be thankful.
    3.     Novelty & newness- gel pens, highlighters, scented lip gloss... anything to jazz things up
    4.     Music, especially flocabulary
    5.     End each day the way you want to begin the next.

    Mini- Episode: Ode to Summer

    Mini- Episode: Ode to Summer

    We believe that teachers are solar-powered and recharge each summer.  We discuss how much work for school we actually do each summer. 
    As far as treating ourselves, Liz treated herself to a pedicure recently, Kari treated herself to a Bota Box (box of wine) & wants to try the new hot soaking pool that recently opened in our city.  Paige has found the only way she can catch a nap with two little ones at home is visiting a “napping pod.”
    Interesting fact: Liz’s school does THREE quick 10 minute recesses to help give the students their much needed brain breaks.
