Teaching Tip of the Week: Recharge the Batteries

As memorial weekend is upon us most schools have shut their doors for the summer and now is the time for us teachers to recharge the batteries for next year.  I do not know about you, but for me I end up putting so much into a school year from everything that takes place in the classroom to all the behind the scene stuff parents and students do not see like collaborative team meetings, lesson planning, and late nights grading papers that as I reach the finish line I am tuckered out.

That is why the summer, fall, and spring breaks are so important to me because it gives me a chance to recharge and get ready for the next round of teaching.  My favorite mode to recharge the batteries is to go traveling, and see new things.  I take the time to read up on class material and lesson plans for the upcoming year but I try not to spend much time thinking about school that way when it is time to come back I can give my students the quality instruction they deserve instead of just phoning it in.

It is so important for teachers to be at their best day in and day out because the difference between a poor teacher and a good can amount to two years of student achievement.  Teachers need to be at their best so students can become their best.  So make sure that you are ready to come back to school and the only way that I have found that works is that I take the time during the breaks to recharge my batteries so I am raring to go when the time is called.
