V is for Versatile

According to data collected by busyteacher.org, the average teacher makes 1,500 decisions per day. To put it into perspective, that’s four decisions per minute!

That may be surprising to some, but in my own experience, many teachers will merely nod their head in agreement with this number. The results aren’t hard to believe when taken into consideration that teachers are expected to be a support system for hundreds of students, manager of the classroom, an educator, a content creator, and so much more.

With so much being demanded of teachers, versatility has become a key job skill. Being able to adapt and change easily from one activity to another, is essential, but more over, it is the teachers’ abiltity to use their skills and strengths for many different purposes that truly demonstrates their versatility.

While it can can excitng to have a career with such variety, it can also be exhausting. Teachers need to ensure they take time for self-care to balance this constant hypervigilence.
