EP228 Preparing to regroup after a stressful school year...what comes next?
Play • 20 min

LAST EPISODE OF SEASON 13! Education is in a time of transition. We’re not quite to the point of post-pandemic teaching, but we can see the light at the end of the tunnel. Moving forward, there’s going to be a lot of talk about what expectations to keep and what to let go of, and it’s critical to reflect:

  • What parts of pre-pandemic teaching do we want to return to?
  • What parts of remote and hybrid learning are here to stay?
  • What do we want the future of education to look like?

The summer plan I’m suggesting in this episode to help you regroup includes 3 elements:

  1. A mental vacation (taking a break from thinking about work)
  2. Reflecting on what you learned about yourself and your teaching
  3. Daydreaming and reimagining the future 

We all need a time of recovery and preparation between school years. And this summer, it's going to be more essential and than ever before to process how the past year has shaped our identities…not only as educators, but as humans.
