Is there really such a thing as work/life balance? Kerry Graham and I discuss the importance of setting boundaries around our time. We are discussing the importance of setting boundaries as a new teacher in your career. Just like our students, we are whole people - we are more than our careers as teachers. During this episode, Kerry shares her teaching story and some tips to help us start setting boundaries as teachers. Here we go!
We discuss burn out - what it is and how to work through it
What does it mean to be you as a whole person? What are some other aspects of your life?
We have other passions in our lives - pursue them!
Think about your why and how does this "yes" support your why
Be kind to yourself and why are saying "yes"
If you are saying yes to one thing, you are saying "no" to something else
Is this something you are going to want to be doing during that time - how is your future self going to feel about this commitment?
Protect your time!
