A Little Time for You, Teacher

Dear Teacher,

Yes, a new year is coming.  It is true.  But summer has a little time left for you.  Don’t let your hopes, dreams, and anxieties about the next group you will be teaching take up all of the moments that remain.  Remember not to forget to carve out a little space for yourself, your family/friends, and all that you love doing that take the back-burner during the school year.  You know doing so helps you to be centered, relaxed, and ready for the challenges ahead.  That means getting ready for next year requires you to be a little selfish.  It is okay.  I promise.  Your next class(es) need you to.  When you are relaxed and ready, you can change the world!

So take some time for you.  You deserve it.  You need it.

Did I mention that you rock and are an amazing teacher and person?  Well, you are!  Take that time for you…and keep on teaching, Teacher!

Love, Teacher
