Jessica Honard is a writer, educator and speaker. In 2015 she created The Adaptive Introvert—and online community for introverted educators. Jessi co-owns Owl Eyes Creative. Let’s imagine that you are an introvert. You tend to recharge better alone, and large groups can be draining—not that you don’t like people, you just need to be left alone sometimes. Now let’s also pretend that you are a teacher. You interact with kids, parents and teachers all day long. You are always “on”, always performing and expending energy. And when you are done with the kids for the day, there are more meetings with parents and teachers. Jessica Honard discusses how to prevent burnout and encourage success for introverts in the classroom.
