It happens. There are days or even weeks when your class will drive you crazy. Sometimes it feels as though you will never make it out the other side again, but I am here to tell you that you can, and you will!
So, when you are being driven a little batty, here are some helpful reminders for regaining your sanity while keeping your students’ engagement high.

Pick Your Battles
