“The only person you are destined to become is the person you decide to be” - Ralph Waldo Emerson

A shooting star, the first snowflake, a rainbow after a storm, a child’s laughter, an act of kindness, the innocent check-in of a furry red muppet—inspiration is everywhere if only we pause a moment to look.

In the past, when teachers had the opportunity to earn tenure, many educational institutions permitted their teachers to take sabbaticals, which are extended break periods during which teachers could rest, reflect and otherwise recuperate from their difficult work. If you feel that you are on the verge of burnout, you might award yourself your own sabbatical, giving yourself several months or perhaps years away from the classroom.
