Do you ever look back on your day and feel like you were scrambling but got nothing done? Maybe you’re having one of those years in the classroom that feels like you’re barely keeping your head above water and there just aren’t enough hours in the day. If these things sound all too familiar, it’s never too late to do a mid-year reset and start fresh. It’s totally possible to end the year better than you started it. It’s time to thrive, not just survive!
