There have been quite a few posts on the topic lately so I suppose this has truly become a world-wide issue. It truly IS extremely difficult to maintain the same level of energy and excitement when all you want to do after a few classes is to stretch your legs in bed, watch stupid TV shows and eat junk food. I’m rather sure that most teachers come across such an issue at one point or another in their life and even start considering changing their career path. If you are a great teacher, I definitely do not want the world to be deprived of such a talented educator, so let’s look into what you can do to keep your spirits high!
1. First alteration that helps me a lot is swapping the roles and becoming a student yourself. Take up crafts classes, start learning a new language or, finally, learn to bake delicious desserts. Being on the other side of the classroom for a change might boost up your inspiration and let you feel that somebody else is responsible for your knowledge.
2. Finding a new place to work at. Going to the same school and preparing for the classes in your kitchen can get very dull and monotonous. However, drinking your favorite Latte and enjoying a nice cozy coffee shop atmosphere can make a huge difference. I allow myself this privilege at least a few times a week and I can assure you that focusing on your work in such places is so much easier.
