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:

As a teacher librarian, I empathize. I also see some teachers who have not yet grasped this. One must choose to not be a victim of these circumstances, be reduced to a hamster in a wheel trying to do it all. This is how the old ed system became great scope and little depth. Slow down. 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. It is not an intuitive thing and I have personally spent quite a few hours in the program trying to figure it out... Take a look and then share these tips with your teachers!
