Tips, tricks, time well-spent … You’re ready to dole it out, but are you listening to your own advice?


Let’s face it, #teacherlife is a busy one. Every day, we muster up the energy to instruct, guide, and support a room full of moldable children — if you’re a specialized teacher, multiply that by the amount of sections or classes you see each day. You throw around kindness, motivation, encouragement, and life-lessons around like confetti, but how often do you do the same in your own life?

So, while you’re cozied on the couch or bumming on the beach during spring break, we hope you’ll squeeze in some self-reflection — all you have to do is read and react to the words below (we know you’ve said them countless times to your littlest and biggest learners).

  1. You can do anything you set your mind to.

  2. Actions speak louder than words.

  3. No rain, no flowers.

  4. Failing to plan is planning to fail.

  5. Don’t be afraid to stand up for what is right, even if you’re standing alone.


That’s it. We’re not going to craft a sermon or order you to read a long list of inspiring articles. Simply, read, reflect, and act.

Then, when you set the alarm for your first day back from spring break, nix the pity party. Instead, aim to make the home stretch to summer break one you’re proud of. It will make a difference for everyone involved — students, colleagues, supervisors, and you.
