Can you believe it?!

IMG_6995Can you believe it’s almost August? 
Didn’t we just wrap up our last school year?
I’m excited about this month, and I’ll tell you why in just a second.

But first, I’m curious…how are you feeling about the fact that school is literally right around the corner?

For me, this time is a mixed bag of emotions. When I first started teaching 18 years ago, I felt excited, and super nervous, and like I had to have every single detail prepped exactly perfectly. (Remember that?)

Now, years later, I know that there are a range of emotions from teachers.

My colleagues and teacher friends have the full gamut – some positive, many negative, and a few who downright dread the start to school.

Why is this the case?
We chose to be teachers!
We chose a career when we get to inspire students!
We chose an environment where other adults do the same!
We chose a path that demands the best of us.

And yet, sometimes, teaching feels downright exhausting, unforgiving, and completely draining.

So I’m going to let you in on a secret.
I’m already loving August because I’ve been working for the past year on a plan to super charge your year. 

I’m crafting unique ways to support you throughout the ups and downs of teaching.

And I’m dedicated to making sure this is the last summer you ever feel dread about the upcoming year.

Stay tuned – in the upcoming weeks I am going to give you the best and wisest information so you can start school (and sail through it) feeling confident, connected, and wildly successful.

In the meantime, take two seconds –
leave a comment with the answer to this question:

How are you feeling?

Can’t wait to hear from you.
