Be Reminded of Your Why
People entered education because they wanted to make a positive difference in the world, but many of them are tired. They are tired of having their self-worth tied to a score on a test; tired of politics, tired of being under-resourced, tired of being blamed for problems they didn’t cause; tired of being overworked, unappreciated, and underpaid. Many of them are starting to wonder whether they matter, whether their work matters, whether they are even making a difference. With tired, heavy hearts, many of them are seriously thinking about walking away from education.
