We don’t get burned out because of what we do. We get burned out because we forget why we do it.

Each day remember your purpose. Remember why you do what you do. We don’t get burned out because of what we do. We get burned out because we forget why we do it. – Jon Gordon 

We live our lives with great purpose. As educators we have the phenomenal responsibility of shaping the future each and every day.  

 

We have enumerable challenges in our work. From moving targets for achievement created by lawmakers to evolving instructional methods driven by a rapidly changing world, from social media’s need for immediacy to increasing number of families dealing with the impact of poverty . . . the work we do is our purpose. When we remember why we do what we do it provides energy, inspiration, and power.

 

We must take care of ourselves as educators. We must be at our best to give our students the best. Today . . . remember your purpose and keep doing what you do.
