Check out this story on sleep from NPR. Had to post this– I’ve been struggling with this all year. Is it not a part of underground teacher culture to assume you (or someone else) is doing their job if they’re on five hours’ sleep or less? How true is this? Maybe we’re all just– well– dumb.
My favorite line on how to get more sleep: set up quality time “with a bed partner.” My amazing husband notwithstanding, this partner for me is usually the saliva-soaked teddy bear my toddler son has left on the pillow.
