5 Ways to Break the Mid-Semester Blues

5 Ways to Break the Mid-Semester Blues | Education Today and Tomorrow | Scoop.it

"Does this sound familiar? You make it halfway through the first semester and just when you find your groove, it hits: the mid-semester slump.

It’s enough to make even a seasoned educator count the days until winter break!

 

"Fortunately, fellow educators can help. We’ve collected their best advice for tackling five common mid-semester challenges." Thanks to Annette Christiansen for sharing this resource on the NEA edCommunities Empowered Educators community.
