Capacity: How to Respect It

Eva Mireles3rd grade teacher, 4th grade teacher, 5th grade teacher, The Reading Teacher's Playbook Podcast, Upper Elementary

I talk about:

-What respecting your capacity means to you as a literacy leader in your classroom.

-Why respecting your capacity at work allows you to show up well in other areas of your life.

-How to respect your capacity by: 

  1. Acknowledge and name your season
  2. Acknowledge and name your limits
  3. Craft a plan that allows you to both respect your limits and grow your skill set, because your professional growth is directly tied to your student’s growth


-We are often the biggest violators of our own boundaries, this fact is contributing to our inability to grow our skill set in a sustainable way.

-Although I am a firm believer in growing our abilities as literacy leaders in our classrooms, I also believe that we can do this while also respecting our limits.

-The goal of this season is to give you tools that help you create sustainable impact in your classroom.
