I’ve been there. I even quit teaching at one point. But I came back to teaching and figured out how to manage my time, help my students, and enjoy my career.
And I said I was never going back. But I did and I’m happy that I went back.
When I quit teaching we moved to another state and I got a job in the customer service billing department of a hospital. Guess what I ended up doing after a few months? Training. Just like every other job that I’ve ever had. We moved back to our original state after about two years and my friend talked me into going back to the classroom.
After going back to teaching I realized that I did want to teach. I just didn’t want to spend every waking moment of my life writing lesson plans that didn’t serve me, my students, and my time. So I figured out how to simplify my reading groups and lesson plans. Then I figured out how to use the process to streamline reading, writing, and math plans so I didn’t have to start from scratch each week. I got my time back and my students were learning because they knew what to expect each day.
Four years after my return to teaching I became an interventionist and use the same ideas that helped me in the classroom to plan and manage 10 daily intervention groups.
I certainly don’t have it all figured out but I want to share with you ways to make small changes so the time you spend planning is productive and your lessons are the right fit for your students.
