Teacher Saves World E29: If I Were Principal: Eat, Move, Sleep

Teacher Saves World E29: If I Were Principal: Eat, Move, Sleep


Laurie & Matt discuss the concept of “self-care” in the workplace to improve performance. Laurie plays principal on this episode, and she says three words would be in her head everyday if she were a principal: eat, move, sleep. Drawing inspiration from Tom Rath’s practical book EAT MOVE SLEEP, Laurie proposes a straightforward approach to making sure we’re ready for the day. While Laurie & Matt take different sides on the alarm clock debate (Matt needs one, while Laurie could do without), they both generally agree on the high priority that should be placed on taking care of ourselves, while admitting that we all have some vices that are hard to kick.

We started Teacher Saves World! to unite teachers and parents in saving the world, one teenager at a time. We're high school teachers and parents of two teens ourselves, so while we love the little ones, that turbulent time between childhood and adulthood is our wheelhouse. We also think high school is four of the most important years in a person's life, and each teen needs an army of caring adults that are dedicated to making sure they're ready to thrive in adulthood. We're taking an Avengers approach: We need everybody to pitch in! We're all superheroes when we care about helping teenagers grow up into confident and capable adults.
