Question: What kind of teaching work do you do on the weekends?
Answer: Truth be told, I carried work home with me, set it by the front door and then never touched it until I picked it up early Monday morning to cart it back to school! Note: See #3 in this series for more on this!
If I did take something home to work on during the weekend, I made sure it was something that was creative and mindless…something I could do while I watched TV or chilled out on the coach. Maybe something that I wouldn’t normally take a ton of time on during the week like prepping an art project, looking online for ideas for an upcoming unit, sorting papers or cleaning up my files.
I just realized really quickly that a teacher who had worked all weekend was a crabbier teacher on Monday.
We need our breaks…and I take breaks pretty seriously!
