The Eye of the Teacher…er…Tiger

Dear Teacher,

It is Monday.  The start of a week.  I don’t know about you, but I need to get a little psyched up for it.  We need a theme song to start us up, don’t you think.  Click play, and once the song starts, keep reading.  🙂

Teacher,  this is your week.  You’ve got this!

If you are still teaching right now, you are ready for this week.  You have your plans.  You have your ideas.  You have your heart for your students.

Don’t worry about the little things.  They are not important.  Your students are important.  You work hard for them.  They need you.  Remember why you do this!  Now, get out there and teach your heart out!

Keep your eye on the goal of changing the future through your students.  Look ahead at the potential they have.  Help them see it.  Give them the expectation and help them rise up to it.

You’ve got this!  You are ready.  Go awesome the heck out of this week!  You will change lives this week!  Go do it, Teacher!

If you are on summer break right now, you still have a battle to fight.  Some of you need to relax and take a break.  School stuff can wait.  You need to wind down from the year.  You need to disconnect, unwind, and let your mind and body heal from the year of a teacher.  School things will still be here when you are done.  Your students next year need you to do this…they don’t need a fried out teacher!

Some of you need to stop relaxing.  Don’t get into the summer lazy cycle.  Spend at least an hour a day on getting stuff prepared for next year.  Get pumped up for everything you can do next year and start planning!

It is all too easy to put things off for later.  Do a little every day.  You will thank yourself later!  You need to keep a little of that teaching mindset and don’t completely check out.  If I am calling you out, don’t feel bad…I am calling myself out here!

Next year is coming.  Your students need the best of you.  Relax, if you need to.  Stop relaxing, if you need to.  You are going to have an AWESOME year next year…so this week needs to be an AWESOME week to help that happen.  It will be an awesome week.  You will be awesome.  You are awesome!

Love, Teacher
