If you're a teacher, you know that as Christmas break approaches, the crazier the kids get. Every year. No matter how many morning class meetings I schedule, holiday stickers I give out, or how many times I remind the kids our Elf on the Shelf is reporting back to Santa, the craziness takes over. The Christmas magic in a child's eyes is hard to contain. And honestly, I don't ever want to squash it. They're only little once. So I jump on that I-need-more-coffee-I-should-stop-for-a-donut-I'll-order-out-when-I-get-home-so-I-don't-pull-my-hair-out train & try to be the opposite of Scrooge on that final stretch!
Our assistant principal understands the craziness that will inevitably happen within the next 3.5 weeks. As we were crawling toward the Thanksgiving finish line last week, we received this email below that started today with "Stuff" Yourself into Sweats or Stretchy Pants. (Yes, I'm very aware I hit the Colleague Jackpot).
Regardless of your work setting, the holidays can be a stressful time! Consider adopting this staff Candyland gem and making your work environment a little more cheerful this holiday season!
Your colleagues will thank you (probably over and over again)!
