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.
And, as a gift to you, I have a
Self-Care for Teachers Journal that you can download so you can see the benefits of caring for yourself.
Here are 18 Affirmations that I encourage you to repeat to yourself each day.
