Another self-care reminder

September 3, 2010

Some of you have already begun the school year, and many of you will begin next week.  Are you spending the weekend working your hind end off getting ready for the new school year?

I hope not. Of course you have to be ready for that first day.  We all know that being well-prepared is the best prevention for other problems in the classroom. Although,  I hope you will take this weekend to prepare your self for being your best self this year.  All you really have to be ready with is a general plan for how your year will proceed, and your first week’s lesson plans.  That’s all.

This is a reminder to take care of yourself this holiday weekend – either pamper yourself, or reinvigorate yourself by doing something fun.  Spend time with people you care about.  Treat yourself to something that will de-stress you.

Then show up for the first day of classes relaxed, renewed, and the best you that you have to offer your students.  That’s really what you have to give to others – your best self.
