TIP: Take time for yourself. I am most thankful for this Thanksgiving holiday. I started the week at the KY Council for Exceptional Children's Conference and am ending the week on break, to say the least it has been amazing and just what I needed. The conference gave me some new and wonderful ideas that I can't wait to share with my school and with you. Even more than that, this week has given me some time for myself. The long hours, piles of paperwork, and the stress of dealing with different behaviors sure leaves a girl drained. Although special education is a challenging career, it is also so rewarding. When I see a breakthrough with a difficult behavior or finally find that one strategy that helps a student learn math or reading, I am reminded why I chose special education in the first place. It is so important to keep your priorities straight as an educator, yes, school is incredibly important, but so is your family, your health and your life. Take time to prioritize your to do list, find something to do outside of school that you love (like zumba, running or crafting...just my faves). Remember to be your best in the classroom, you need to remember all of the things that you make you your best!
