Teacher Self-Care Journal


Product Details

This journal is your permission slip to give yourself some TIME! Being a teacher can be a rollercoaster ride. We have times that are extremely rewarding and other moments that are tough. At the end of the day, effective teaching and learning isn’t going to happen unless, we as teachers, look after ourselves.

Here at Rainbow Sky Creations, we believe self-care needs to be a priority in the life of every teacher. So we decided to create this self-care journal as a place you can come to for ideas, inspiration, to record your reflections, feelings, achievements and gratitude. It is the ideal resource to come back to as a home base throughout the year for your self-care needs.
