What does this teacher do on breaks???—Corona leave me alona!!!

Teachers are a one-of-a-kind breed. We are the ones deep in the trenches of the youth of today hoping to make a small difference by educating a generation. Every day we get up and teach even when many of the ones in our classroom do not want to learn. We are constantly judged and scrutinized in our profession from which we received a degree. Respect is not often given, but we trek on in the midst of it all. Because of this, breaks are MUY IMPORTANTE! 

This Corona break has given us plently of time to do all the things! ๐Ÿ™‚ Here are

Watch All the Shows

Binge watching is a wonderful time-killer. Netflix, Hulu, Disney+, or Prime Video. There are many ways to make this happen.

I love getting into a new show and getting lost. Make sure you have plenty of binge-watching snackies. If you are unsure what to watch, here is a list of some of my favorites.

Reality shows: Survivor, Hell’s Kitchen, Project Runway

Crime shows: Leverage, Law & Order: SVU, Criminal Minds

Not your average shows: Stranger Things, Umbrella Academy

Need some comedy: Psych, New Girl

Take All the Naps

Teacher do not get many naps during the school year. I have taken the occasional nap on my off hour in the teachers’ lounge if I needed it. Now is the time to take all the naps that you need.

Disconnect All the Things

With all the crazy media making everyone panic, it may just be time to disconnect from social media for awhile. 

You cannot really disconnect with the internet altogether because many schools are going online, but a little time to yourself without the contact of the outside world might be nice and refreshing.

Read ALL the things

I usually wait until the summer to read anything because I cannot get engrossed in a book or I will not sleep. Now is the time to take advantage of all the time you have a read all the books you have on your summer waiting list.

Here’s some of my favorites:

Percy Jackson and the Olympians- Rick Riordan

Heroes of Olympus- Rick Riordan

Harry Potter series- J. K. Rowling

Enjoy the quarantine.

Use this time to refresh and renew your body and mind. If we are to go back to school, the students will need a teacher that is rested and ready to get back to work. We all know that we will have to reteach many policies and procedures so rest up and be ready to be at your best. Our students need us.

  1. What do you recommend for someone just getting back into reading? I’m in a risk class and housebound for the most part, so I figure reading is a great way to pass the time.

    My favorite books have come from teacher recommendations (which says how long it’s been, I’ve been out of high school for 15 years!).

    I liked 1984, so my teacher recommended Brave New World. Now I have a collector’s copy. ๐Ÿ™‚

    What do you recommend I start with?

    1. I absolutely LOVE the Percy Jackson series. I re-read it every summer. It focuses on Greek mythology. If you find that you enjoy that series, there is a series after it that brings in the Roman mythology.

      The Harry Potter series is also quite fascinating. I could not put them down.

  2. I love your outlook on this! It is certainly a crazy time, but there are always positive things to be found. I hope you really can take some time to rest up and recharge! As you said, the students will need teachers that come back ready to go.
    I worked in an elementary education setting for 9 years previous to this school year, I totally get it! Teachers work SO HARD and deserve this break. THANK YOU for all you do to help kiddos learn and grow, even when they don’t want to! Enjoy your recharge moments!
