Right about now, in that never-never land between Thanksgiving and holiday break, you and your classroom are likely experiencing a mid-year slump. It can be tough, in these darkened days, to maintain a certain level of enthusiasm and keep the kids motivated.

So today on TeachHUB.com, frequent contributing writer Janelle Cox, herself a seasoned educator in Upstate New York, examines five ways that teachers can bring about a feeling of re-energizing.

Janelle’s ideas include:

Janelle sums up her article thusly: “These are just a few ways that you can re-energize your classroom and avoid the mid-year slump. Getting students up and out of their seats, while trying something new will allow them to gain some much needed perspective for the rest of the school year. It is also essential that teachers show their enthusiasm for school. By keeping your energy and excitement up mid-year, you will show students how to follow suit.”
