As teachers approach the new school year, they take on a plethora of responsibilities: writing lesson plans, attending grade-level meetings, grading, leading afterschool clubs, holding parent conferences, participating in IEP meetings and RTI meetings, and, of course, teaching. In the midst of everything that happens at a school, what teachers do and do not do affects the students’ welfare. Given the intensity of this role, teachers sometimes feel an urgency to become the savior within the classroom—yet those who respond this way easily get overwhelmed and leave with the profession. The savior mentality sets in quickly, across classrooms; if you’re not careful, it can happen to you. Participants in this session will have the opportunity to identify their level of savior mentality within the classroom. They will take away strategies about how to manage their time, achieve life balance, and create an atmosphere that fosters student-led classroom.
