March signifies so many things, but to students, it means SPRING BREAK! Many students look forward to the week off from school. No waking up early, no sitting in classrooms all day, no homework, and no exams. Well, guess what? Educational leaders should be just as excited!
This week is a great chance to clear your mind. The hustle and bustle of leadership can be tough on the mind, body, and soul… and there is only so much stress one can handle. Some leaders have a difficult time taking a break. For those leaders, I challenge you to at least take a half week to rest and relax. No emails. No planning. No reports. Instead, try a few of the activities below.
How do you plan to spend your Spring Break?
