Too Tired to Celebrate?
Oh my goodness. Me too.

As the academic year draws to a close I am left feeling the most tired I think I have ever been! 

We have so much to celebrate here at Edufolios.  With record numbers of downloads on the podcast and a recent win in the Boosting Female Founders grant, we should be dancing a jig. But I need more chocolate and cheesecake if that’s going to happen.  I don’t know about you but the academic year 2020 has been a challenge.  So many things have had to be altered from the norm.  

How were your usual school markers and traditions affected this year?  Your routines and cultural norms at your site?  

How many times did you have to come up with a slightly different way to do something that happens every year? From assemblies to school trips and parent-teacher interviews.  It was all a bit.. well… different this year wasn’t it?
Are we so tired because of Creative Fatigue?
This phrase “create fatigue” was introduced to me by a senior leader at a site I’ve been working with recently.  I think she hit the nail on the head.

This year we have all had to think outside the box and change direction SO MANY TIMES. It’s crazy!

In this week’s podcast, we take a moment to pause and reflect on that.  To celebrate what that meant for you, your students and your professional experiences.
