It has been one of those days. You know the kind I mean. The kind where you have to retrace your steps after every transition in your day because you’ve forgotten one (or three) essential items.
So… it turns out…
It is really hard to drive to school without your keys.
When you offer (on Tuesday) to have your writers present their poetry at today’s (Friday’s) All School Meeting, it would be a good idea to inform them of this plan.
It is important to bring the pages from the copier back to your classroom before you teach second grade math.
When kids are ready to finish their work, it really helps if their work is actually in the classroom. Not on the counter by the copy machine.
During your seven minute turnaround window after school, it would benefit you to actually grab your yoga mat before heading to the studio to teach a hot vinyasa flow class.
When you attempt to log on to the studio’s computer, it works the best if you use the password for the studio – not your password from school.
Kristina’s tips for reversing said day:
- Embrace mediocrity. Thank you, Kate Roberts.
- Smile and laugh. These days happen to the best of us.
- Take the long way ’round. Take an extra breath during those times when you get to walk outside. It’s March. It’s sunny. The air smells really good.
- Use these moments to show your students that it’s okay to make mistakes. Laugh through them. Say, “Easy fix!”
- Make yourself a quick (under seven minutes) cup of tea before you head to the studio.
- Use your mug that says, “This is probably wine”.
- Wear your favorite yoga pants. The bright and colorful ones that make you smile.
- Soak up the goodness that comes with exercise, challenge, and community.
- Remember that tomorrow is a brand new day, and you get to start all over again.
