How do all of you working parents do it? The stress of the beginning of the school year is so much to handle, yet that is only a piece of my life now. How do you balance taking care of your children and family as well?!?! As we all start to transition back to school, I can't help but think about how I want to take better care of myself this year. I want to "find" the balance between my personal and professional lives. We all do; don't we? I have learned over the years that balance is not always about sitting right in the middle ALL the time. Instead, it is about the give and take. Yes, at the beginning of the school year my professional life is going to require more of me, but that doesn't mean that I can't carve out time for yoga, hikes, and walks at the duck pond with my family.
This year, I want us to support one another. I want to learn from each of you on how you find balance in your life. Each month, I will feature two educators and how they find balance in their life. These features will allow each of us to take a piece of advice from a fellow teacher. Any educator can participate. All you have to do is fill this form. I will create a feature based on the information provided. Let's support one another and have an amazing school year! Please let me know if you have any questions (my email button is on the top right of my webpage).
