“Are You Kidding?  I can take care of myself WHILE I’M AT WORK?”

Feeling pulled in too many directions and have just learned of another responsibility that is yours?  Feeling pressured to perform at even higher levels of expectations?  Let’s face it, working in the schools either as staff or administration is demanding.  Consistently performing at or beyond your maximum may invite visits to the doctor, absenteeism, burn out and even short term memory impairment.  Learn one gentle body based strategy for self preservation today, and use it today. This is something that you can practice in the classroom, an office, or in the teacher’s lounge.  Look at your schedule and plan WHEN you practice.  If this made you smile, COME JOIN! Register
