We can't go home and prepare 5 lessons a day, grade 50 quizzes, record a video of highlights from class, fill out student progress reports, and then cut out holidays shapes for the bulletin boards. Not every day, even though we'd like to.
It is only recently that we've realized that many of our expectations for teachers are just not healthy We can't be everything and everyone to all our students, all the time, much as we wish we could. But so many teacher self-care books encourage you to do even more Now you have to find time for journaling, yoga, coffee dates, and more.
