Finding the balance…3/10

I remember my first teaching placement like it was just a few months ago…I was in a grade 6 class in a fairly large K-8 elementary school in the north end of Thunder Bay.  I was enthusiastic and excited to have the opportunity to learn the ropes in an actual classroom.  I learned many strategies to cope with a variety of student needs and abilities but the one thing that I learned which still sticks with me today was the advice my teacher advisor Alison shared with me.  She said “always remember that you need a balance between you job and home life”.   That being said, I always have to challenge myself to maintain that between no matter which way life swings.

  1. Truly one of the most difficult skills to master! There is no “off button” in this job… Took me years of trying different strategies and different teaching packages to get good at it. Great to have you at The Valleys and thanks for sharing this link. 🙂
