147: Avoid the Rumor Mill

The spring season in a school building can cause a lot of anxiety as testing begins and talk about changes for the upcoming school year surface. In order for a teacher to close out the current school year successfully (and with all of their sanity intact), they must avoid the rumor mill. Tune in to this episode to hear 5 tips for how to do just that!


  • It’s a juggling act that ends up being so fluid nothing is ever final
  • Let the rumors go in one ear and out the other
  • Your kids don’t need to see you stress about what might or might not happen in the future
  • Ground yourself in the truth about what you yourself can change
  • Stay present – Stay sane
