Start Your Work Week on the Right Foot

Let’s face it, we all hate Monday mornings. Even if you’ve had a fantastic, relaxing weekend, Monday morning often rolls around far too quickly. Going back to work can seem like an impossible and daunting task. Although heading back to work on Monday morning may never be enjoyable, there are certain things you can do to ensure that you start your work week out on the right foot.

Eat a Good Breakfast

While it may be hard to wake up half an hour earlier on Monday morning, doing so in order to a good breakfast could leave you in a better mood for the rest of the day. As “they” say, breakfast is the most important meal of the day; not only is it delicious, but it will provide you with a healthy, helpful jump start on your Monday morning. When you start out with the right amount of energy, the rest of the day will go much more smoothly.

Get Plenty of Sleep

Again, Monday mornings are rough, but they can be even worse if you haven’t gotten enough sleep the night before. It’s not that you have go to bed at eight in the evening, but you want to give yourself a minimum of eight hours of sleep. Getting enough sleep can help prevent you from oversleeping and feeling grumpy and groggy on Monday. Don’t discount sleep, it’s one of your biggest fuel powers.

Monday is a state of mind. Put on your positive pants and get stuff done.

Be Responsible

If you’re going to party hard over the weekend, try to do it on Friday or Saturday; you don’t want to have to go to work with a hangover on Monday morning. Furthermore, if you have anything that you have to get done over the weekend for work, be sure you get it done; if you don’t get it done, you’ll find yourself frantic and worried on Monday morning. On that note, if you know that you’ll have trouble waking up and will feel groggy in the morning, try to set out everything you need so that you can get ready quickly without forgetting anything you’ll need for work.

Getting a positive start on Monday morning can be imperative for starting your work week out on the right foot; if you have a bad Monday, chances are you’ll have trouble recovering. The important part is to set yourself up for success through good meals, plenty of sleep, and preparation.

One Day as a Teacher: What to expect and what to do?

Although just about everyone who went through public or private education had a teacher, not many of us can easily remember what it actually was like to have a teacher. And unless you have worked as a teacher in some fashion in the past, it is very difficult to imagine what it actually is like to be a teacher. However, most teachers will tell you that the art of teaching is a rewarding, challenging and unforgettable experience. Here are some of the things that you are likely to learn and experience in a day as an average elementary school teacher.

Classroom management is extremely important

This is probably the single biggest surprise most people experience when they get a chance to teach. While it is important to know your material and to be able to convey it in an effective manner to your students, the truth of the matter is that if you cannot keep your students in line, you will not be able to teach anything at all.

Many new teachers find themselves full of knowledge about the latest instructional techniques and theories, but soon come to realize that none of this means anything without the ability to keep students in their desks. Veteran teachers, on the other hand, may not have the latest theories from educational departments and teaching programs, but they will almost always have their own tried and true methods of keeping students off the walls and ready to learn.

As a result, if you are thinking of starting a career as a teacher, the first thing to focus on should not be whether or not you have a passion for your subject or whether you are the fun man or woman who loves to be around kids and share knowledge. Rather, what you’ll need to focus on will be whether or not you can manage a lot of people much younger than you who don’t know why they should be listening to you instead of having a good time. Once you’ve got that figured out, everything else comes easily in teaching.

A teacher takes a hand opens a mind and touches a heart.

The adults in the building are often just as challenging as the students

This is another surprising element of teaching that takes new teachers by surprise. Once you have the basics of classroom management down and your students can more or less sit in one place, you’re likely to find the administrators in the building to be your next challenge.

No one likes taking orders and no one likes to be micromanaged, but most schools have very definite pecking orders and teachers are very close to the bottom. Finding ways to fit in all of the requirements of the principal, the superintendent, and the board of education can be more challenging on some days than finding ways to keep your students from throwing paper airplanes at each other.

Challenges in students can often be traced to challenging parents

Finally, nearly every experienced teacher will tell you that difficult students almost always come from difficult parents. This is particularly evident whenever parent and teacher conferences roll around.
