The life of a teacher isn’t always Pinterest-worthy. As we head into winter break, show us a picture of you keeping it real: your messy desk, your tired face… something to make us all feel we’re not alone as we exhaustedly finish up the calendar year.
Notes from the Tch Laureates

I slept for eleven hours yesterday. Yes, I said eleven! On a school night. I was that tired. I went home with all kinds of aspirations to read my students' latest pre-assessments, participate in the #BTPchat on Twitter, and make a pot of acorn squash soup. Once I sat on my couch, that was it. I was out for the night. I'm sure I'm not the only teacher who is feeling exhausted this time of year. With the changing weather, fewer hours of sunlight, and the non-stop demands of our profession, it makes sense. Who is with me? If my exhaustion rings true for you, I hope you’ll join our Tch It Real photo share to help us tell the real story of what teaching looks like right now. One of the best strategies to prevent burnout is creating community, so help us build our community of allies and keep it real by joining #TchItReal. Winter break is almost here. Let's welcome it together!
