    Teachers, It's Time To Let Go And Look Forward | Blogcast

    It's no surprise that, while teaching during a pandemic, teachers have been under immense pressure, often putting their jobs ahead of their own mental well-being. Teacher-Mentor Karen Bracco proposes that it's time for educators to put themselves first. After all, self-care isn't selfish - it's essential.

    Teaching Quietly: Turning Off The Noise | Episode 13

    Teaching Quietly: Turning Off The Noise | Episode 13

    According to a January 2021 poll conducted on behalf of the American Psychological Association, 84% of adults reported feeling at least one emotion associated with prolonged stress, most notably anxiety, sadness, and anger. Teachers are not immune to these feelings, especially while teaching remotely, which can result in higher levels of anxiety, stress, and anger than most educators would say they are comfortable with.



    In this episode, we share doable, practical tips on how to make your teaching day, and ultimately your students’ day, calmer, more compassionate, and less frenetic.

Beacon of Hope

Cindy is a ray of sunshine who offers bits of wisdom of for hope those of us who are in the trenches. The podcasts are short and to the point but offer real life suggestions from a veteran teacher who spent 20 plus years teaching on Long Island. I really enjoy listening on my way to work and feel inspired to try Cindy’s suggestions.
