13.1 Ways Teaching is Like Running a Half Marathon

Whenever I tell people that I run half marathons or I mention to them that I'm a middle school teacher, their answers are usually the same -

Ugh. Why would you want to do that?

And that response is the premise of 13.1 Ways That Teaching Middle School is Like Running a Half Marathon. This high-energy session is about all the challenges that we teachers face on a daily basis. Like our classes, some of the topics addressed are very serious (the importance of planning, not wasting time, persevering through difficult times), while others are a bit more light-hearted (learning to eat in 15 minutes, wanting to change careers mid-lesson, ultimate bladder control). Regardless of if you're a runner or not, these are all topics that teachers will understand all-to-well.

After providing an overview of each challenge, three ""next-day"" strategies will be provided to help teachers become better at their craft. That means you'll leave with close to 40 strategies that will easily fit into any content area or grade level!

Don't miss out!
