When I joined the club, I was at the point of I can’t keep doing this without pulling my hair out. I was at constant stress and sleepless nights. What I have learned and I am using is the idea of when I am at school be at school. Work and not get distracted by fellow teachers, email, Facebook… I use the weekly to do list to help keep me focused on what I am doing before school, during prep times, after school, and at home. I also use the strategy to do the thing you don’t want to do first. Once that one thing is done, I feel so accomplished that I am ready to get more done during the day.
