It's that time of year when we are all transitioning from the spring work life into summer. Last week was my final week of classes and one of the things I'm learning from experience as well as in social emotional learning is the value of personal wellness. Taking care of yourself is essential for educators and it's especially relevant while easing the transition into/out of classes and the changes that come with it. For many of us the structure of our day changes and it's an opportunity to find some time for being creative and making it part of your summer routine. I know for myself it certainly helps my attitude and outlook as well as allowing for some expression of emotions so I hope it does the same for you. Below are the Summer Transition themes for this week, as always enjoy and share your work with #TERPart and #k12artchallenge!
As an extra challenge see if you can get some of your work out into the world this week, as teachers we don't always have the chance to submit our work into contests and exhibits but there are may opportunities via websites like CaFE and Illustration Friday or with JJ Community and Magnum for photographers. If you do enter work be sure to share and celebrate it!
