Teacher Saves World E69: Happiness, Energy, and the Value of a Plan

Teacher Saves World E69: Happiness, Energy, and the Value of a Plan


Laurie & Matt share the 9th list they’ve started curating in their Sourcebook, a journal of ideas, concepts, and information that defines who they are and what their life stands for. We each have a Sourcebook, and you either write and live your own, or allow it to be written for you.

This episode’s list reminds us of all of things in our lives that make us feel good, and also how we often sacrifice so many of them when we become teachers and parents of teens and devote ourselves to helping them grow. Too much sacrifice leads to burnout, and we want to stay healthy and happy for the whole game. Creating this list, and then making time each day to enjoy some of the items on it, restores us and lifts us, and helps us to be better teachers and parents.

We started Teacher Saves World! to unite teachers and parents in saving the world, one teenager at a time. We're high school teachers and parents of two teens ourselves, so while we love the little ones, that turbulent time between childhood and adulthood is our wheelhouse. We also think high school is four of the most important years in a person's life, and each teen needs an army of caring adults that are dedicated to making sure they're ready to thrive in adulthood. We're taking an Avengers approach: We need everybody to pitch in! We're all superheroes when we care about helping teenagers grow up into confident and capable adults.
