Taking a Deep Breath
So, I wonder how many teachers out there can get ready for their year without being completely stressed out? That, my friends, is my current goal. It is even possible to organize and plan with the same Zen-like way we stroll in the park. Well, that is a little extreme. Maybe, I should strive for something more realistic. Could I get my classroom ready with the same mindset as I have riding a bike? Reading a book? Baking banana bread?
Training my brain to relax is the hardest exercise I have ever had to work on. But, like Malcom Gladwell says,10,000 hours of practice to make an expert.
I'll let you know how the practice is going later this week when I'm pulling my hair out.
