Teachers: how to cope with your first day back



How to survive your first day back after a fantastic Christmas and New Year.

We understand how hard it is to get to work on a cold January morning and start a new term of teaching. So here at Focus, we have compiled a check list of things we thing will help you settle back into work.

Here is our ‘how to cope’ checklist;

  1. Be prepared – lessons planned, clothes ready, hair brushed, and the list goes on.
  2. Have a long, hot, bubbly bath.
  3. Have a positive mental attitude (it’ll be half term in about 38 days, 5 hours and 31 minutes)
  4. Stock up on paper clips for when you need help holding things together.
  5. Don’t forget your umbrella for lunchtime duty in January, maybe bring your hat, scarf and gloves too…
  6. Have your Focus Education books at the ready to guide you through the year!
  7. Decorate your bulletin board with fun things to look forwards too.
  8. Make a start on those student name tags.
  9. Stock a box of tissues to wipe away any tears… yours and theirs!
  10. Purchase a notebook to write down all the funny things children say.
  11. Decorate your classroom, to make life a little more cheerful.
  12. Have the class room rules ready for the New Year.
  13. And lastly, pretend it isn’t happening. This is all just a bad dream!
