This winter break, make some time for YOU! See what these nine educators are gifting themselves as they recharge this holiday season.

“Movies and self care: quiet time/playing basketball/massages/quality food!”

“Reading an adult fiction book! As a middle school English teacher, I just can’t seem to enjoy a good read during the school year!”
– Teacher Jeri Asaro (@JeriAsaro)


“Over winter break, I’ll give myself the gift of diving into some great books with diverse characters and rich stories.”
– Educator Todd Nesloney (@TechNinjaTodd)


“Reading for pleasure, writing, and listening to classic rock.”
– Teacher Dan Tricarico (@thezenteacher)


“Over winter break, I’ll give myself the gift of reading Star Wars and History books for fun.”
– Teacher Phil Strunk (@MrPStrunk)


Take some YOU time over the break, and we’ll see you in 2018!
