    Teacher Tired! How to Set Realistic Expectations in Education (Summer Replay Episode)

    This is not what I thought this school year was going to look like….

    That is a statement that has been said by nearly every teacher this year and we are heart-broken about it.

    If you are struggled to get your footing this year...

    If you felt this year was your hardest in education to date....

    If you are need a big boost....

    Then this episode is for you because it’s all about setting realistic expectations for ourselves as teachers.

    We don’t have control of everything, but we do have control over what we expect of ourselves as educators.
