041: How to Embrace Being Flexible this Year
Listen now
2020 is the year of flexibility. Once we get going and things are looking great, new plans, different situations or a complete game plan change happens in the blink of an eye. One thing is for sure, teachers like routine and stability, but how can we possibly build any of this when we don’t even know what this year has to hold? We know that the year has been stressful and let’s be honest with one another, a lot of the time we don’t even want to think of the possibility of change because it only adds to our stress. However, if we view these new circumstances as opportunities to be flexible versus looking at it as change you’d feel better prepared and less stressed.  HOW TO EMBRACE BEING FLEXIBLE:[4:08] School/District Requirements[10:27] Lesson Plans[18:03] Students[21:35] Parents[25:56] Coworkers CONCLUSIONThis year is offering up a lot of challenges but when we take a step back and analyze the situation you will find that you have more control than what you think.
