This morning I walked into my classroom feeling exhausted. Done! After days of standardized testing, my mind was fried! At this point of the year, (forgetting that I still have a mortgage), I wonder if I can keep doing this. I have taught for 26 years and everything’s changed, the parents, kids, my workload, the list is endless.
But then I get a reminder of why I teach. This is my third one this year, so it must be a sign.:) Don’t give up! It was in my Inbox this morning.:
This is Kara S.,
You taught both me, and my brother collin way back in 2005/2003
Im on a mission to hunt down all the teacher in my life that have made a big impact on me
Im so glad i found you, and thank you so much for teaching me!
