Good news, friends! DEVOLSON (a.k.a. the dark, evil vortex of late September, October, and November) is more than halfway over! But there are still four long weeks until Thanksgiving break, so we thought we’d pull together some of our favorite inspiring quotes and teacher humor to help you see it through. Save and share it with a teacher friend who needs it!
1. Look for the bright spots.
They’re out there.
2. I’m just a girl.
Feel free to sub in “copy machine” or “laptop cart” at your pleasure.
3. The extras don’t matter.
All you need is love.
4. Be a little crazy.
It’s the crazy ones who get things done.
5. Just another Monday.
And Tuesday, Wednesday, and Thursday TBH.
6. Think happy thoughts.
You were born to rock this teaching thing.
7. It’s a 24/7 job.
Find the tribe of people who get it.
8. It’s a tough gig.
But the rewards are beyond amazing.
9. Be a rebel.
Even Monday can have its rewards.
10. You’re capable of hard things.
But you also deserve your weekends like whoa.
11. Happiness begets happiness.
So work on yourself first.
12. Keep believing in yourself.
Even when the challenges seem overwhelming.
13. Your reach is eternal.
And as crazy as it sounds, you’ve got this.
14. Be brave and teach on.
Even if the copier stops working five minutes before class starts.
15. This may be a picture day fail…
But it’s my face at the end of DEVOLSON, too.
