Day 22: Teacher Tantrums


While unbelievably rewarding and inspiring, the job of a teacher is also a stressful one! The paperwork, tests, data, conferences, phone calls, lesson planning, and meetings are endless! We tend to get so caught up in trying to cram in everything that the students need to learn in the short 9 months that they are “ours”, we often forget to relax and have fun every once in a while!

One of my best teaching days happened a few weeks ago. By Wednesday, I was stressed, the students were stressed, and, frankly, we just couldn’t go anymore!! The new math curriculum had gotten the best of us all! After going home and reflecting on everything, I decided that my students and I needed a break. The next day, I declared it Throw Out the Textbooks Thursday! We pushed all the desks out of the way, took off our shoes, and had a stress-free day on the floor! I still taught, the students still learned, and everyone had an A in conduct that day! It definitely went down in the record books as one of my best days ever in my 10 years of teaching!

So, when you’re feeling stressed, just simply kick off your shoes and throw the rules out the window! Your blood pressure will thank you!
