I’m doing things a bit differently this episode, and I’m opening up about the hardest teaching year I’ve had so far in my career.

Have you ever felt like we are held to higher expectations than others as teachers? This is a common issue among teachers because guess what? We have lives too! I have taught for years and talked to teachers all around the world. There seems to be a consensus on the fact that teachers just aren’t respected the way that they should be. Not only are they feeling like they aren’t respected, but they also don’t feel valued, and it feels like they are being taken advantage of. We are expected to give our entire lives over for the outcome. But we are more than just teachers. We are human beings with goals, hobbies, families, and lives outside of the classroom. We should be able to live and enjoy our lives outside of the classroom without all the judgment about what we do.The higher standard that teachers are held to is quite baffling at times. It differs from state to state, but some are so strict that it's just not fair to those teachers at all. Tune in to this episode to hear more of my thoughts on the expectations that are placed on teachers and my thoughts on things we can do to push back against these unrealistic and unfair standards. I would love to connect on Facebook: facebook.com/EasyTeachingTools & Instagram: instagram.com/easyteachingtools!Show notes available at easyteachingtools.com/episode16Resources Mentioned:Get your Refresh and Recharge ticket: https://www.easyteachingtools.com/refreshandrechargeI would also appreciate it if you would leave me a review on Apple and a rating on Spotify!I read each of them, and they help me make sure I am providing the content that you love to hear!

Are you feeling stressed or burned out? I have heard from so many teachers that even though it’s summertime right now, they don’t have the energy for anything because they are just so burned out. This makes sense because unfortunately, so many teachers aren’t being supported or respected right now, so they don’t even want to go back to teaching in the fall.I hear you. I know it’s hard, so in this episode of Real Teacher Talk, I sat down with Dr. Christine Li to talk about how you can get inspired to go back to teaching. Dr. Christine Li has been working as a New York-based clinical psychologist for the past 20 years. More recently, she has taken her work online as the “Procrastination Coach.” She helps people who are struggling with underperforming at work and at home to work smoothly and with high levels of productivity. Her unique coaching process is a blend of mindset strategy, time and emotion management tips, and a deep belief in the power we each have when we treat ourselves with love and good self-care. Dr. Li is the author of the book “5-Minute Self-Discipline Exercises: Stay Motivated, Cultivate Good Habits, and Achieve Your Goals” and the host of the podcast “Make Time for Success.” Tune in to learn more about how you can incorporate things like self-care and meditation into your life, ditch the guilt, and remember your “why” so you can get your inspiration to teach back. I would love to connect on Facebook: facebook.com/EasyTeachingTools & Instagram: instagram.com/easyteachingtools!Show notes available at easyteachingtools.com/episode14Resources Mentioned:Register for Refresh & Recharge: https://www.easyteachingtools.com/refreshandrechargeCheck out Dr. Li’s website: https://www.procrastinationcoach.comAccess Dr. Li’s resource library: https://procrastinationcoach.mykajabi.com/freelibraryListen to the Make Time For Success podcast: https://podcasts.apple.com/podcast/id1548504774Join The Procrastination Coach Facebook group: https://www.facebook.com/groups/procrastinationcoachConnect with Dr. Li on Instagram: https://www.instagram.com/procrastinationcoach/Follow Dr. Li on TikTok: https://www.tiktok.com/@procrastinationcoachI would also appreciate it if you would leave me a review on Apple and a rating on Spotify!I read each of them, and they help me make sure I am providing the content that you love to hear!

Do you spend your weekends prepping for the next week of school? So many teachers spend Sunday night planning for the following week and then running to the copy machine early Monday morning to make copies for the day. If you're guilty of this, this episode of Real Teacher Talk is for you because I’m sharing my top tips for getting planned before the weekend so you can actually enjoy your days off. This topic is a pretty big deal for teachers, so it’s something that I go into more detail on in my Easy Organization Tools program. However, I grabbed the most important tips from there to share with you so that you can get out of this rut. I know what it feels like to spend hours planning and prepping. I didn’t want to use my weekend planning for the following week either, and when I learned that other teachers do that, I wanted to be able to help and make it a little easier for them. Tune in to hear my top organization tips that will help you plan for the following week without cutting into your well-deserved weekend. I would love to connect on Facebook: facebook.com/EasyTeachingTools & Instagram: instagram.com/easyteachingtools!Show notes available at easyteachingtools.com/episode13I would also appreciate it if you would leave me a review on Apple and a rating on Spotify!I read each of them, and they help me make sure I am providing the content that you love to hear!
