Go, teachers. It’s only bad because that good teacher is back, school is now in, and we are going to change lives every moment of every day. If you are a Christian, then the enemy is mumbling, “My goodness, is it time to start school again? Time to get busy. I got some destruction to cause.”
Relax- I say all the time “Your stress doesn’t become my stress”, then help students with problem solutions. I also say “It is not about the messes and problems that we make, but how will we recover? How will we fix this?” I remind them that we are a work in progress and that progress sometimes takes a lot of work.
