169: Unveil the Value in the Daily Grind

Every career choice has a daily grind. Unfortunately, some daily grinds are a lot more difficult than others and the daily grind of a teacher falls into that category. Teacher leaders can partner with teachers to unveil the value in the daily grind so that these tasks not only get completed but the passion for teaching doesn’t get lost in the day-to-day job requirements. Tune in to hear how to help teachers stay in love with teaching.

Unveil the Value in the Daily GrindQuotables

  • This is why we lose great teachers because although they are talented and passionate, the job of being a teacher comes with so many obstacles it is exhausting to overcome more days than not
  • We cannot continue to lose our best and brightest because the job is too dang hard
  • My favorite leaders pushed beyond acknowledgement and rolled up their sleeves to help
  • As teacher leaders our job isn’t to always hold hands; our job is to hold hands for as long as needed and then release teachers with the skills and techniques needed to do it themselves.

We have a real need in our nation for strong educators to remain in the field. My blog, book, podcast, courses and instructional materials are geared towards empowering teachers (and those that lead them) to receive the support needed to grow and thrive today, tomorrow and always.
