When I decided to become a teacher, I knew education was the career for me because I wanted to make a difference in the lives of students.  I had some wonderful teachers that impacted my life and I hoped I could do the same.

Being in education is AMAZING but there are a lot of things during the day that can get you feeling a little down or questioning if any difference is being made at all.

This is where Affirmations play a huge part in my daily routine.  By reminding myself why I started teaching in the first place I have a much more positive outlook.

Self-Care for Teachers Journal that you can download so you can see the benefits of caring for yourself.
