Teacher: The day I knew for sure I was burned out

Teacher: The day I knew for sure I was burned out | ed tech.computer class.writing ctr.ICT skills | Scoop.it
'Teaching at a high-poverty school was different because no matter how fast or long I worked, I could not get everything done.'
Melissa Vee Rentchler 's insight:

Reflect. Act on the reflections and change your focus. Do a few of the priorities with excellence. Even doing a few with excellence is extremely demanding as evidenced by past teachers Jaime Escalante, Erin Gruwell who burned out after a few short years.

For your teachers that may still rely on Power Point, this is a good tutorial for adding narration/sound to your presentations.
