Is anyone else too mentally exhausted to do anything but mumble and nod these days?
I am finding it exceedingly difficult to look at the growth my students have made this year. I am hyper-aware of what feels like my own failings as a teacher. I know, I know...don't say it. I can't help but question each decision I made all year.
I feel bitter. For the first time ever, I do not love my job. I hate that feeling. So what is the solution?
Move to FOURTH GRADE!
Actually, I was considering this move long before I even met my students. I knew the position would be opening up this year, and had played with the idea of teaching an older grade for some time. I am ready to be challenged by curriculum, ready for changes.
And speaking of peacocks...(were we?)...CHECK THIS OUT!!
Yes, it's real. It's healing nicely, and I LOVE it.
