Every morning I wake up at 5. This guarantees me 45 minutes of quiet time. This time is reserved for me, selfishly! It is used for me, selfishly! It looks different each morning.

• Some mornings I jog.
• Some mornings I start to jog, give up, & go eat a snack cake.
• Sometimes I read.
• Some days I sit in the shower & let the water hit my face like rain.
•Other mornings I selfishly make my wife coffee, & fold laundry.

The point is, the time is mine! When is your time? When do you make time?

This is a good Idea. This year I am overwhelmed at times by the switch to virtual teaching at the same time we have a new LMS and switch to google suite from Microsoft Office. So much new this year and second semester, I will have blended learning classes. Always something new to learn in my career of 32 years, but I'm not ready to retire just yet.
I definitely need to find some ME time.


Absolutely! Find time for yourself. It is a necessity!

Posted this in ethics bowl but doesn’t have many members. There is systemic discrimination that is affecting me, and also was a targeted incident last week. This has been brewing for some time - and I have been looking for a new job. Can’t afford to just quit. I want to file a complaint against my employer, with the EEOC. I am in house counsel to director level colleagues who are part of this. I am not sure if it violates ethics rules to file one, but I have been a victim. Thoughts?

Does anyone have a google sheets template or layout that they love for headcount + new hire tracking? I’m trying to make a clean, easy to follow spreadsheet for all open requisitions, filled roles, and all the tasks involved with onboarding a new employee. It feels a bit messy so any tips or suggestions for cleaning it up would be great. Thanks!

Might be niche but I want to short the Japanese economy in the long term. I’m seeing a few leveraged inverse ETFs for the Nikkei and yen, but not much more.

Folks that got a prenup. How and where did you get it? We have spoken to a couple of lawyers and it simply seems to be a back and forth they want to do to rack up billable hours/complicate the issue. My SO and I pretty much know what we want. We are doing it mainly to protect my SOs inheritance. Looking for the simplest way to execute this. TIA for any advice.

Take a breath. You got this!

Hello all!
So, I am very excited to finally have a real opportunity to connect with you all about self-care.

With the new “Live Conversation” feature on Fishbowl, we can now host conversations quicker and easier than before.

For the first conversation, I’d love to have an opportunity to introduce ourselves, then share with you my stance on the importance of teacher self-care.

Please join me in 15 minutes for “It Starts with You.”

4:15 PM Central Time


It has taken me well over a week and a half to feel like a human again this break. 3 days left and I feel simultaneously like I’m getting shorted and grateful that I had the time to have my breakdown off-the-clock. When do you go back and are you feeling ready?


Many of us are blessed to be off today. How will you care for yourself today?

Make a plan to do at least 1 thing for you! What will it be?

I am finishing up a great book. It has been a wonderful read, and I am thankful to have this free morning to tackle the last few chapters.

What about you?

I work in a public school setting and am allergic to citrus. My district has stated that it is too much trouble to accommodate me. I carry an Epipen and have an anaphylaxis reaction to being exposed to citrus. My district is not accepting my doctor note. They think I am exaggerating and refuse to limit citrus fruits on my campus. An HR meeting concluded that I was required to work through it/use the emergency response team if I have “an issue”. Pls share if you have had a different experience


How do you plan to care for yourself this week?


I challenge each of us to find one thing to be truly thankful for. Please post a description, or photo of this thing in the thread below.

And GO!

How to deal with parents that want to know everything but you don’t want to tell them everything because you want to loose your job?


Hey you, weary teacher, I see you.
I hear you sigh,
eyes closed,
Head in your hands...

I know the things you think,
the doubts,
the frustrated pain...

I know you are trying.
I know you work hard.
Sometimes it seems like you’re the only one
in the whole damn school who cares...

I know.
I see.
I hear.
I care.

You are the difference.
You are power.
Through you flows the future.
You author the stories of the world.

I care about the tale you are creating.
Please keep writing. Please.


True or false: I have a minimum of 2 trusted colleagues who care and support me...


What is the quickest way to “lift you up”?


I need some advise. 2 years ago( when I turned 33) I realized my energy level is going down at a faster rate everyday then I have ever experienced. I had my doctor do yearly different tests and everything is normal. I try to work out at least 2 times a week and take vitamins D and B12. I am getting fatigue and feeling weak, unable to accomplish my tasks sometimes (not depressed). I am losing the sense of consistency. Anything anybody would recommend to do or take?


Art is a cathartic process for me. It has been a decade or more since I have used charcoal to create. When my students requested it as a unit this quarter, I was mildly excited.

After a few quick sketches, my excitement has grown.

I’m concerned about the surge in omicron. I packed everything, just in case. Q2 is ending, a new quarter is starting. We get new kids each quarter as a Specials teacher.
It’s stressful at quarter changeovers.
In going back after break, it’s too much of a contrast. I cannot sleep, I wake up in the middle of the night, “for the day”, about 6 nights a week. To stay structured, I go to “Surrender yoga” daily. I’m good to go do 1 more thing after yoga. I feel accomplished. Couching causes anxiety.
