I started my career in the OCDSB passionate and obsessed with early learning. Fast forward a few years and I was fighting burnout and losing steam FAST. I was spending way too much time scrolling socials for ideas and feeling frustrated by how long it was taking me to find the resources I needed. I was desperate to find lessons my class would actually enjoy and for a plan that reassured me we were covering everything we needed to cover between daily evacuations, constant interruptions and of course, PLAY!
I KNEW I should be working less hours and could feel my personal life (or lack there of) taking the back seat again and again. I felt like I was losing myself and my passion for teaching kindergarten. I knew I needed to streamline my planning and stop reinventing the wheel. Over the next few years I perfected workshop style teaching and completely turned my experience in the classroom around.
My mission is to show teachers that they can do less and love teaching more - and no, you don't need a "unicorn class".
The Sunday Scaries are a thing of your past. It's time to start strutting into work on Monday mornings rested, recharged and ready to take control of your week. Save your energy and your patience for where it matters most and embrace done-for-you planning. You've earned.
