Teacher, Be Still is an educator wellness company providing encouragement and personal wellness to educators. Jill Miller & Jamie Harrison have taught in public, private, and homeschool settings elementary through high school, and through it all they saw one alarming trend - teachers are tired and very little is being done about it. The Teacher, Be Still Podcast explores the realities of life in education, touches on hot topics, and provides practical and relevant discussions for maintaining wellness in the life of an educator.
Being a Teacher - Parent
Being a teacher - parent isn't always easy, in fact, it's kind of hard. But, your family is your first ministry and while that may not look like how the world operates, it's ok to stand out in the crowd. Happy Mother's Day to all of our listeners!
The Blurry Lines Between Teachers and Parents
Somewhere along the way the lines have been blurred and teachers were expected to "parent" their students. We believe this has backfired and now we need to find our way back and take this burden off the teachers' plates. Parents and teachers shouldn't be put in a position of opposition, but rather working together to do what is best for the kids.
Do you feel qualified?
Feeling qualified to do our jobs right now can feel hard. There is some opposition to educators and of course, state and district expectations that can never realistically be met. Today we talk about how your qualifications are far beyond just what you teach your students.
Is the Grass Greener on the Other Side
As you make decisions for next year, ask yourself a few questions : Have you prayed about it? Are you and your spouse in unity with the decision? Is the change going to provide me what I am hoping for? We know you feel tired and are looking for hope, but the grass isn't always greener on the other side.
