Students also face the challenge of showing up. Sharing that you also face this challenge (while emphsizing that you are always happy once you do show up and get to see your students' smiling faces) can let your students know it is okay to feel that way.
The good news, is that sharing how we feel and learning that we are not alone, can make us feel better. We are in this together, and that makes all the difference in the world.
Our curated resources this week will help you explore your role in helping students with their mental health, how to prevent your own burnout, and better understand why school mental health includes educators too.
