organization self-care Feb 25, 2021
Are your busy? Overwhelmed? Burnt out? I get it! In fact, I was just there last week. 


Teacher lives are busier than ever before and as we head into the end of the year, things just seem to speed up, don't they?!  Overwhelm, exhaustion and just general burnout are rampant. Maybe you’re even there right now, friends. If you are, I'm so sorry to hear that. But here's help...

Today's episode is all about helping you take back a bit of control in six simple ways, from email to systems. In fact, I think of these as not only organizational tasks, but self-care. Yup. Self-care. We have to create sustainable day-to-day lives in order to be sane and enjoy our lives. We're not meant to walk around stressed out and overwhelmed ALL THE TIME. You deserve better than that.

Listen in.

In this episode, find out:
  • Why NO is your new best friend! 
  • How to make dealing with your emails faster than ever.
  • What a one touch organization system is and how it can help you.
  • How to organize your grading so you're not grading all the time.
  • Why you need to work on creating one new system at a time.
  • And more!

You can do this!
