Back-to-School Motivation

The final countdown has begun. In a few short weeks we will be back in our classrooms...smiles on, energy high, coffee full, and ready for anything. We have had the summer to take deep breaths, refocus, recharge, and plan for a "full steam ahead" moment come school day numero uno.

Each year, I like to start with this video that I found a few years ago. It still gives me goosebumps and fills my eyes with tears each and every August. Don't let anyone tell you that teaching is easy...that it is a day full of coloring, tying shoelaces, and correcting papers. Remember why you became a teacher. Remember the teachers that made a difference in you. The next time you are criticized or a victim of a blanket "teachers have it easy" statement, refer to this video.
