My school closed at the end of last year, and it was merged with another. It’s been an absolute nightmare. Lots of disrespectful students with fights. I’m emotionally spent. How do I get my mojo back?

How have you trained yourself to watch what you say 100% of the time when you are at work? I come from a very politically conservative background and am having trouble adjusting.

This isn’t my self care menu (mine is less pretty, lol), but I had the teachers I’m coaching make self-care menus last week, and I loved the outcomes! This is something that’s been so helpful for me.
