I remember when I first started teaching and how I felt like I was drowning my first year. Drowning in paperwork. Drowning in meeting and new curriculum. Drowning in trying to get my classroom set up every day after school only to be told something different had to change by the next day.
I get it. I’ve been there. It certainly wasn’t what I had hoped it would be.
But I also know what it feels like to finally have put together some tried and true fun and educational activities, so at least my lesson plans were stocked and ready to go without feeling like I needed to come up with something new out of the box yet again this year.
Suddenly I felt in control. Perhaps I couldn’t do a darn thing about the 10th staff meeting this week or that the specials schedule was out of whack yet again. But I knew I could easily make some adjustments in my lessons if needed and still be on track.
That feeling was different. It is pride and empowerment.
But mostly relief from the nonstop stress of trying to figure it all out at once.
And today, don’t teachers need all the empowerment we can muster? I really think we do.
Part of what I do outside of the class these days is helping other teachers to find those long-lost feelings. And I know a “few” teacher sellers who also feel the same.
That’s why we came together to offer a super exclusive option to those teachers who just wanted the hard stuff done for them. That’s a good thing. It means you can spend more time with your family at night and extra time enjoying the cozy feelings of fall with your students during the day.
I was blown away by the kind words about these items from teachers everywhere. What they have said:
“This was perfect for a quick go to activity.”
“Great way to get the students back into the swing of things in an interactive way!”
“I love these activities for my early finishers and they look forward to them as well!”
“Love this as brain break, math center, early finisher, or even a sub activity!“
And that is less than HALF of them! WOW.
This is everything to us.
It also helps us to know we are doing the work we were meant to do.
