Teacher Stress: 11 Ways to “Shake It Off” from the Learners Edge Team


We understand this time of year is stressful. The luster of the new school year may now be “lovingly” tarnished, and it is often the time of year that our work as teachers gets real. Students that were a little behind at the start of the year might suddenly feel panicked. The small stack of grading you’ve been trying to manage looks more like a leaning tower. Even Mother Nature seems to be toying with you: Oh look, it’s snowing! Wait, was it too soon to pack away those shorts? Can I wear a raincoat over a parka? And just when you start to get your teacher groove back for the year, daylight savings time ends and the world turns off the lights before you even leave school for the day. Yes, it can be a tough time of the year.

So when we came across the post “5 Ways of Coping with Devolson: The Dark Evil Vortex of Late September, October, and November” by bloggerLove, Teachwe just knew we had to share it with you! We want you to know you are not alone — we’ve been there, felt your pain, and now we want to share with you our favorite ways to deal with this stressful time of year.
