When it comes to teaching, you used to be like a golden retriever puppy—up and at ‘em before dawn. Just itching to get out the door. Smiling from ear to ear. You just couldn’t WAIT to see what was coming next. These days, you feel pretty sure your eager puppy days are over. In fact, you feel more like an old dog with zero time or energy to learn any more new tricks. To be honest, you’d really just prefer to spend all day sprawled out on the couch, hoping someone might throw you a bone. You’ve barely got enough energy to bark at the mail carrier, and when somebody does give you a pat on the head, all you can do is heave a big sigh.
That zippy, sparkling teacher you once were is long gone…a stranger from long ago.
…Or is she?
Come have a seat and let me make you a smoothie—made with a healthy dose of honesty and a sweet touch of hope. I’ve BEEN where you are. I’ve:
tried and failed to “do it all” and be Super Woman
felt the Sunday night blues (every night of the week sometimes!)
And through trials and triumphs, I’ve discovered the hard way the better way-- to:
ROCK your day
be that teacher who uplifts, inspires, and makes a lasting difference
feel “caught up” every single day - without working days, nights, and weekends, and without sacrificing your work ethic
be more productive
feel more energetic
