Britain’s TES Magazine has a few hints for overworked teachers: get a life. They’re advising teachers that with the new year, educators should vow to get out from under that stack of essays that need grading and those lessons that need planning. TES recommends rest, recovery, and relaxation along with a renewed effort to get organized and stay on top of what needs to be done. In America, if you’re a teacher and need a new lease on life for this new year, head to Ithaca, N.Y., where the whole city plans to honor teachers in February with free meals, discounted theater passes, and breaks on hotel rooms. That should relax you!
