It can be so easy to get caught up in the rat race of life and find ourselves constantly busy. Especially for educators. Even more so for school librarians who have a billion-and-one things on our plates on any given day.
The end of the year is rough. More than likely you’re dealing with standardized testing, AP testing, banquets, award ceremonies, inventories, book returns, summer check out and all sorts of other things this time of year. With all this going on, it’s important to take care of yourself too. In my April post on AASL Knowledge Quest, I share some of my favorite books that have helped me through overwhelming and stressful times.
In my post, I share six different books that have made an impact on me this past year. Most deal with simplicity, minimalism and intentional living. Books like these have helped me to slow down, take a look at my commitments and take some things off my plate. And I’m so much better for it.
