37: Sending out an S.O.S.

The ebb and flow of highs and lows is no stranger to an educator. There are certain times in the school year that are more stressful and anxiety provoking than others. There are certain times in a teacher’s career that feels more downhill than up. Those are the moments where sending out an SOS to a trusted colleague and mentor is a sign of strength, not a death sentence. Tune in to hear an inspiring story from a real teacher ebbing and flowing as we speak.


  • Everyone has different issues but our common denominator is we all have issues
  • The quicker you allow yourself to deal with what’s happening, the quicker you open yourself up to solutions and support
  • Sending out an SOS is not a sign of defeat or lack of strength. It’s a reminder that you are a human being who can only give and do so much.
