I'm super interested in all topics related to health and wellness for myself and all my students. In particular, stress management seems super essential for all of us to effectively relate to our lives.

What are you doing to take care of your health and well-being?

What is your school district doing to take care of your health and well-being?

My son's school is extending the Thanksgiving break by two additional days to give staff a longer break.

My school checks in with us frequently about our mental health. We have started a teacher newsletter and some in-person social gatherings. Personally, I'm trying to get outside in nature several times per week!

I make sure to stop working as close to the end of the school day as possible. It's not always possible, but I try to remind myself I can get back at the work in the morning. Teachers have a tendency to take a lot of work home and stay late after school, but I try to make sure to leave enough time to relax, spend time with family, and recharge with my favorite crafts/hobbies/movies!

I wish they knew and appreciate the many hours we put into doing our jobs to bring our lessons to life online.

We are parents, too. We are concerned we are being poor caretakers of our own biological children.

I wish people knew how hard it is to teach students that are in the classroom at the same time as we are teaching ones at home. I feel so bad for those that are fully online (not in hybrid) because they never get the extra attention that those in the room receive. I wish I could give them more time and energy, but there just isn't any left to spare!!

I am more fit because I went KETO last year in November and dropped 35 pounds.

Wow, 35 pounds is a lot! Now the challenge is to keep it off, right?

Share one teacher/student relationship building skill you are good at.

Name one relationship skill that is an area for growth for you.

Really Listening to students when they talk and want to share.

I am good at connecting with common interests. I love graphic novels and so do a lot of my students.

Walshd_3536723 December 1, 2020, 7:08 pm

I love to laugh with my students and be a tad silly so they know I an only human!

Strong relationships are needed now more than ever. Students basically only go to school and then go home. Their time with friends and extended family is cut to bare minimum. Students need interaction while at school and they need us to care, inquire, and be there. Our role as teachers who build relationships with students is greater now than before the pandemic.

Oh gosh, we are all reaching out and supporting one another through these difficult times. Smiles are free, give them away during class and you will get them right back!
