Special Education Saturday - Learning from the Lives of Teachers

We all change our habits during the summer. Kids are out of school and available for adventures and fun. Teachers have time to do the chores that get pushed aside during the academic year and attend training to improve their skills for next year.

What can we learn from these professional educators?

  • Take a little time to get caught up. Doing those tasks you've been putting off frees your mind and reduces stress and anxiety.
  • Plan ahead for next year. Set up a system to collect homework and other papers so they return to school safely. Organize clothing and other materials for easy access. 
  • Talk to other parents about what things they do to make family life easier or more enjoyable and try out a few of their tips.
  • Take a breather. Get some rest. Change your daily routine. Refresh yourself before the big Fall push begins.
  • Schedule time for some fun before the summer has fled. 
What are you doing to make your life better or have some fun?
