Sunday Scoop

Hi, Teachers!

Today I'm linking up with Teaching Trio and sharing my Sunday Scoop!


Sometimes it's good to remember that we have a life outside of teaching. It's easy to forget to practice a little bit of self-care, but I think it is so important for us, especially since we have a profession in which we are required to give so much of ourselves. I really happen to love that part of teaching, but it doesn't make it any less draining! So, here's me thinking about myself as a person AND a teacher.


So, teachers, I want to ask you: What are you doing to take care of yourself as a person first? If you want to be a good teacher, you have to TREAT. YO. SELF. I do firmly believe that. If you don't have a little fun or relax sometimes, you burn out. I notice a direct correlation between how much time I take for myself and how well my classroom is running. How are you going to practice a little bit of self-care today or this week?

  1. Hey there! I agree that as teachers so much is asked of us but we have to remember to always take time for ourselves (which is sometimes difficult to do).I like your blog and some of the creative things you do in your class -I'm hoping to blog more this week because it's been a while!

    Keep up the good work and happy teaching!

    1. Hi Mahogany! Thanks for the kind words. :) It is hard to take time, but I notice such a difference when I do. I can't wait to read your blog posts!

  2. I prep my meals, too. It is so much easier especially when hump-day rolls around and you realize you still have two more days left! At least the food is ready! ;)

  3. I agree wholeheartedly about the need to #treatyoself. I experienced a complete burnout once, and it wasn't fun! Don't plan on having it happen again, so I always make sure the weekends are all about me unless it's an absolute necessity to bring work home.

  4. I totally agree with taking care of yourself in order to keep a happy classroom. Today, my kids and I split a caramel apple as a little treat and we try to do something non-school related on the weekends.
