In the blink of an eye, we’ve all been thrust into this new, scary, chaotic, and potentially overwhelming situation of having to now be a teacher from home away from the comfort and familiarity of your classroom and your school.
Let’s be honest, even the most technologically advanced, resilient among us is feeling a little unmoored by the rapidity of the situation.
So the question you may be asking yourself is can you do this? Are you up for this?
And I want to assure you with a resounding YES! You are!
But is it going to be easy?
I’m going to be honest with you, it may not be easy BUT it’s going to be worth it!
Now you may be asking how do we move from chaos to calm and continue to do our jobs?
I’m so glad you asked!
Here’s how we are going to do it:
1. Learn how to create an effective home routine
2. Set realistic expectations for ourselves and our students
3. Reimagine our teacher lives (and personal lives) in new and exciting ways!
After spending the past five years working from home off and on because of both an educational sabbatical an extended maternity leave, I have gone through the uncomfortability and uncertainty of how to effectively build a routine, get productive, and care for yourself.
Because of this, I want to save you from going through this trial and error and lead you through an easy process to jumpstart your new teaching reality.
To get you started, I created a free guide Move Teacher Self-Care from Classroom to Home
You’ll get immediate access to the document you can print and you will have a guide to get you started going from crisis to calm as you move from classroom to home.
I also am so excited to offer a FREE workshop to help break down this seemingly overwhelming task of moving from chaos to calm into small manageable pieces.
Register here for the You’re Teaching from Home: Now What? Build a Routine, Get Productive and Care for Yourself in 4 Easy Steps.
You’ll learn how to seize on this opportunity to create the teaching life you have dreamed about.
So no matter what stage of the teaching from home game you are at right now, hopefully these resources will be helpful in some way.
