Something to look forward to in final preparations for the start of the school year:
All year long, the energy you use is reciprocal – you get emotional energy back, in the form of responsive students, musical moments, and more.
The many hours of summer work don’t come with the same reciprocal energy – they are simply expenditures of energy, but with little or no return.
I’ve written before about building capacity for the next school year, but there’s something to be said for transitioning into the reciprocity of your emotional energy usage during school.
Hang tight, it’s coming soon!
