Have you ever spent your Sunday freaking out about your week ahead? Scrambling to finish last minute lesson plans or meal plan for the week ahead? Ruminating about all the what if's?

Did you know that literally 80% of professionals experience the Sunday Scaries, according to a LinkedIn survey. That number is astronomical but does not even account for the educational professionals who experience this, which is probably closer to like 95%.

Don't worry, I'm not here to tell you that the Sunday Scaries aren't real or that you just have to "stop worrying" (I always hate it when people say that like it's an intellectual decision). I'm here to tell you that I have been there, I've done that, and I'm sharing in this episode a story that I've never shared anywhere else online before. I am, however, here to share with you it's possible to transform your fears and reclaim your weekends. So are you ready to slay those Sunday Scaries?

These pep talk style episodes are my attempt to create a more authentic way for you to connect with me, for you to feel like you have support on your hardest days (even if and ESPECIALLY if you don't have that in your community or schools).  I also created this style in an effort to show you that you are not alone. We are in this together and YOU ARE a RESILIENT TEACHER!
