One teacher shares her school’s fourth-quarter survival guide.



Whether you’re a student or a teacher, the end of the year means both stress and excitement. That’s why Humboldt Unified School District teachers came together to create a survival guide this year.

“Teachers brainstormed all the fourth-quarter challenges and came up with our Survival Guide Tips for the end of the year,” says Instructional Specialist Elizabeth Rushton. The Master Teacher shares some of the list’s key tips.

  1. Breathe – When dealing with students, take a moment, re-evaluate, then deal with issues.

  2. Have a plan – Communicate the plan with your group, then stick to it.

  3. Use test time – Create a folder of filler activities like puzzles, logic, and vocab while your students are working.

  4. Manage your time – Simplify grading and don’t be afraid to give up control. Peer grading can do wonders!

  5. You’re a person tooLeave “me time” every day.

  6. Stay energizedPack you lunch and snacks the night before so you’re not left hungry.

  7. Collaborate – Connect with your colleagues to come up with emergency lessons and activities.
