This blog is really a double dip for me. I want to document my constant revelations of how good I have it in my current position, but I also want to help you to understand that, although the media, your district, and even your administration and fellow teachers focus on the well-being of their students (as they should), they are consistently leaving out an imperative part of the equation when it comes to teaching and learning: the well-being of YOU. You deserve to be taken care of too.
At this point, my goals for this blog are as follows:
1. To mentor new teachers in my attempt to keep them BURNED-IN!
2. To help those who are BURNED-OUT to reignite that fire! I'm talking to you... yes YOU. I see your eyes rolling...
Join me as I share with you that pivotal moment where I knew something needed to change in my career and the book that pushed me over the edge. And, NO. It was not a book about education. In the meantime, follow me on Twitter @burnedinteacher to read articles I have retweeted that are keeping me BURNED-IN or to see what's happening in my classroom! You may also email me at firstname.lastname@example.org to tell me what you need to be the most on-fire, burned-in educator you can be. No panic-stricken, basic, or tear-soaked request is too small. This blog is here for YOU!
