Stop Squeezing

 

Even our best educators feel like they’re failing.

They’re stretched too thin.

They are depleted, exhausted, and spent.

 

I don’t know that anyone truly understands the extent to which this will impact our profession.

We are going to lose good teachers.

For good. They will walk away and never look back.

 

For those who didn’t believe it, teacher burnout is real.

As a leader I feel like I’m failing to prevent teachers from feeling this way.

Burnout is real for all of us.

 

You can only squeeze so much out of something before it comes apart.

Let’s not let anyone else come apart.

Stop squeezing. Instead, let’s help our colleagues to recover.
