If you’ve been in the world of education for any length of time, then you’ve been to innumerable meetings, trainings, workshops, seminars, and a plethora of other required events – far too many of which end up feeling like they’re all the same thing.
My school is on trimesters, so coming back wasn’t a new start so much as picking up where we left off. Still, having two weeks to regroup and get a jump on some of the planning for this month was, well… it may have saved my life. At least emotionally.
It’s easy to feel completely and totally whipped by events beyond our immediate control these days. I’ve had to walk away from social media and all forms of legit news – local, national, or foreign – for days at a time, just to find the energy to function and do the stuff “real life” needs me to do.
