Start Each Day with a Clean Slate
Often, it is difficult for teachers to release the feelings and emotions of a rough day with challenging students. A clean slate can ensure relationships are the focus rather than building hostility for previous wrongdoings. 3 ways to clean the slate daily include:
- Forgiveness – Being able to forgive allows us to be at peace with ourselves and those who have wronged us.
- Forget – Specifically do not hold a grudge. Not forgiving = not forgetting.
- Move On – Focus on the future and the opportunity for a positive change.
