Drawing boundaries with our time isn’t easy, and I’ll admit that there are ebbs and flows in the course of the school year.
But I believe it’s essential, because Parkinson’s Law is a thing. Give this work more time, and it will take it.
I’ve learned to draw boundaries instead. I’ve learned to pursue some personal passions. And the result? I’ve gone from burnout to a teacher on fire.
For your sake and the sake of your learners, I hope you’ll do the same.
