Dear Teacher Take a Breath Everything Will Be Okay

Dear Teacher,

Take a breath. Everything will be okay. I promise. 

I just hung up the phone with our oldest who is in his first year as a teacher.  He's the max! One of my dear friends was brought to tears on Friday because of her stress level.  You can look at the faces of some of the teachers I work with and see the stress. I can look in the mirror and see the stress.  Our job is tough! Really tough!!! It doesn't matter if you are a first year teacher or a 25 year veteran. So many demands from so many directions. Let's take a moment to breathe and remember why you teach.  It's those little people that love you no matter what.  They are the reason you walk into that classroom every day.  Perspective is everything! Love them, teach them and let go of things that are out of your control.
