I am not a morning person. My younger self used to think even getting up at 7 am was waaay too early. (Those were the days.) When I began teaching I noticed that I would still struggle to be awake and have a positive attitude in the mornings. I came up with a few tricks to make my mornings a little easier (if not actually enjoyable) so that I was ready to teach students as soon as the bell rang. I hope you find these useful as well.
