I think planning for a school year always involves a degree of open-endedness and uncertainty. But this 2020-21 school year takes the cake when it comes to uncertainty. Here are some things you can actually work on right now to get a handle on your prep for the upcoming year.

Teaching can be hard. But I don’t have to tell you that. You get it. That’s why sometimes it’s good to just chat with another teacher about some things that work well for them. So that’s what this post is, really, just a little chat, from me to you, that I hope will offer you some simple teacher survival ideas to save your sanity this year.
