Homework (The “H” Word) has become a hot button topic lately as teachers are deciding to eliminate homework altogether in their classrooms. This episode hears from various educators and parents on their opinions on the hassle of homework as well as shares the detrimental effects of taking such drastic measures. Listen in to hear the debate and formulate your own opinion on what is best for a child’s development physically and mentally.

Quotables

Balance is important and necessary
Achievement could drop without prioritized practice
Can’t jump extreme to extreme- that’s how trends come and go
Don’t just jump on a bandwagon of convenience
Prioritize and differentiate

Today’s episode is inspired by a lot of different emails I’ve gotten from teachers about a wide range of problems with administrators. Some of these teachers feel like their principals place too much emphasis on testing and try to standardize teaching so there’s no freedom for teachers or kids. Others simply don’t feel supported by their admins; they feel like workhorses who continually have more demands stacked on their plates without any acknowledgment or appreciation of what they do. Listen as I share what an individual teacher can do to create change, shift school culture, and advocate for him- or herself as well as for students.

We can only be as good as we allow ourselves to become. That means we need to advocate for what we are and aren’t willing to do so that we can become our best. Educators, tune in to learn how to be a team player while setting boundaries so that you fulfill your vocational role as effectively as possible.

Quotables

It's not that coaches aren't team players, but we need to protect their purpose.
You can't grow as a coach when you don't have time to coach.
[Teachers] have huge hearts and even bigger capacity to fulfill additional duties. But that doesn’t mean we should.
No one ones a jack of all trades, master of none. They want experts.
You are putting first things first and keeping the main thing the main thing.
Set the boundaries, stick to the boundaries, and advocate for your boundaries.
