Tips for Teachers That We All Need Right Now!

Hey y’all!

Boy oh boy! Teaching right now is…a lot. It’s a hot mess and teachers are leaving the field in droves. It’s astonishing how many teachers are leaving. I know for us in Florida, the case is dire. According to the FEA’s (Florida Education Association)website article, we are experiencing a shortage for subs, teachers, bus drivers, paraprofessionals, and more. Some of it is due to COVID. Some of it is due to pay. Some of it is due to burn out or a combination of all of it. The lack of support and the increasing workload along with disrespect and lack of empathy makes one to throw in the towel.

Not everyone wants to leave though (personally, I have like four more years in the classroom before I want to a leadership role). So, what’s a teacher to do? Well I did what I do best and went to the internet and asked current teachers what advice they had for teachers either starting out or who are just struggling to stay afloat. My personal advice is to leave stuff at school: don’t work past your contract hours. That has helped me mentally because the first of my teaching, I was drowning and was drinking more and it wasn’t helping me or my students.

So what do some other teachers have to say? Read on to find out!

If you’re struggling fellow teacher out there, my heart goes out to you. This year personally for me has been really difficult and I’ve almost reached my breaking point!

What advice would you give a fellow teacher out there, if it wasn’t mentioned?
