Did this year fly by for anybody else? I cannot believe it’s winter break and we’re already at the end of 2022!

Winter break is a time to rest, recharge, and have fun. One of my best friends, Lauren Tingle of the Counselor Clique, is here today and bringing great advice and some laughter to all of us to wrap up the year. She is talking life hacks, self-care, teacher and school counselor partnerships, and so much more! 

You know how much I love giving you tips to help simplify your life inside the classroom so I thought it would be perfect for us to share ways to simplify your life outside of the classroom as well.

In this episode, Lauren and I are talking a bit about school related topics like what it’s like working with friends, why teachers should put time into school counselor partnerships, Lauren’s best and worst experiences with teachers, and the importance of setting boundaries.

But, because most of you are on break right now, we wanted to share tips to help you rest and recharge during breaks, life hacks that will serve your future self, and 3 things that are saving our lives right now and may help simplify your life as well!
