As you begin your school year, there is one word I want you to keep in mind … and that word is Grace! Oh, I know you will show grace to your students and fellow teachers. But that is not the kind of grace I am talking about. I’m talking about grace for yourself…the same kind you show to students and other teachers and staff members, even when they might not deserve it.
When it seems like your day is unraveling and nothing has gone right and all you can think is, “if only I had, or if only I had not,” give yourself grace. The same kind of grace you would give a friend or a teaching partner when their day was not going well.
Right now, I want you to get a post it note. In big letters write the word GRACE! Post it in your work space where you will see it and remember that is for you. You’ve got everybody else covered. Make this a day of grace for yourself!
And remember…You are not alone!
