About a year ago, I started to really think about all the time as educators that we spend in our classrooms. Well as you know the amount of hours we spend unpaid in the classroom exceeds any other job. I decided that the following school year I would make a change. I wanted to regain my own life back.
This is more than just wanting to have extra time to get dinner with a friend or catch a television show. I wanted to be able to pursue other ideas and work on things that benefit my life. This includes maintaining a healthy lifestyle, reading informational books and working on my blog.
I am going to dedicate quite a few of my next blog posts to giving ideas/ suggestions that are working for me. These posts will not only inspire you to start leaving work on time but also show you that you can still be an amazing teacher while doing it!
