What a great topic! This is definitely something that I think every teacher goes through. That thought about leaving education seems like a thought that pops into our heads when things get very stressful during the school year. I liked the idea of taking breaks. We can get so lost in the world of education that we lose sight of ourselves. It’s crazy that we see such pros in PLNs but it could totally lead to more burnout because we never “leave that world”. As our responsibilities grow with what we need to do for our students, parents, administration, and state requirements we can become overwhelmed. Your tip on mindset can also do wonders with helping with the burnout. Mindset is important in everything we need to do. Those negative Nancys can be so toxic not just to others but to themselves. Positivity breeds positivity! We need to make sure we keep great teachers in the classroom. Our future generations depend on it.
