What do you all do when you are going through stuff (mental health wise) outside of the classroom. Teaching is a profession where you always have to be "on". What do we do if we are anxious/depressed?

We have to do as you say and be “on” 24/7. The children have these same issues of anxiety/depression, etc. most of them have to deal with it and come to school anyways. we have to show them how to handle things like that in society and that life goes on.
We are their stability and for some, a person they can always count on to love them and support them.
Everyone handles things differently. Just my opinion.

I always dread going in when in this situation but usually feel like its a blessing. It is a nice distraction and makes me happy and feel productive. Plus I'm a better teacher when I don't have the patience for shenanigans 😂

Sometimes on the bad days it seems impossible to do anything but theres almost always at least 1 kid who will make you smile!
