Your summer calendar is likely full of trainings, planning sessions, hiring, and hopefully a little vacation. Add time to your calendar to recharge and build up your whole self.
In The Power of a Teacher Adam Saenz’s describes 5 areas of well-being: occupational, emotional, spiritual, financial, and physical wellbeing. If these are spokes of a wheel and even one is out of balance, we can’t drive ourselves, let alone others to their potential without experiencing a breakdown.
This summer, work to bring these 5 areas of well-being into balance for yourself. Then when school resumes, challenge your staff to do the same and to help each other stay balanced throughout the school year.
