Welcome to Teacher View Today - a forum for “teacher voice” and a platform for expressing concerns, sharing success stories and imparting strategies to help others successfully maneuver each day in the classroom. Whether teaching K-12 or college, we all share like experiences. I hope you’ll consider Teacher View Today your “go to” place for collaboration outside your classroom. Nancy Ellington
Never be bullied into silence. Never allow yourself to be made a victim. Accept no one's definition of your life; define yourself.
“We cannot know the consequences of suppressing a child's spontaneity when he is just beginning to be active. We may even suffocate life itself. That humanity which is revealed in all its intellectual splendor during the sweet and tender age of childhood should be respected with a kind of religious veneration. It is like the sun which appears at dawn or a flower just beginning to bloom. Education cannot be effective unless it helps a child to open up himself to life.”

As educators we seem to be inundated with stress everywhere we look these days. It’s during our most stressful times however, that we can actually make the greatest gains in life.
Eleanor Roosevelt said, “You gain strength, courage and confidence by every experience in which you really stop to look fear in the face. You must do the thing, which you think you cannot do."
How do you cope with classroom stress?
Balance is important in our lives. In today’s world we find little time to do much more than work and eek by with everything else.
Edward Hallowell, M.D. says, “Simplifying your schedule is a matter of living in a way that reflects your life’s natural rhythm.” He authored a book called CrazyBusy: Overstretched, Overbooked, and about to snap: Strategies for coping in a World Gone ADD. His seven strategies for coping with time crunches are -
1. Don’t multitask
2. Keep to-do lists short
4. Be positive
5. Limit interruptions
6. See organization as a means, not an end
7. Don’t lose sleep over it
