Closing the Teach For America Blogging Gap
Apr 07 2010

I wish my kids would stop acting their ages.

My day went well (I forget that but will write it anyway) but ended poorly, which means I’m stuck dwelling on the bad part until I can go in and try again tomorrow. This sends me into one of those awful first-year-teacher lows, where I’m suddenly convinced that I’m a terrible teacher and I’d love to just curl up in my bed and give up on today. I haven’t had a low like this in awhile, so I guess I was due for one.

Sooooooo you should not read my whining, and instead read this. Because it is insightful and entertaining, and today I am neither of those.

    Awww! You are not a bad teacher (in fact, you are pretty much an awesome teacher), if you were, you wouldn’t even worry about whether or not your day went well. We all love and appreciate you!!! Remember, kids are kids and will all have their crazy days. Many are starting to feel pressure about next week, and aren’t mature enough (nor do they have enough skills) to deal with stress, so instead they act crazy. Tomorrow will be better :-)

  2. I have been visiting various blogs for my Report Editing Service Research. I have found your blog to be quite useful. Keep updating your blog with valuable information… Regards

  3. Thanks for the love, AZ. Mutual friend hollered about you.

    Remember: all you can do is all you can do. If you’re working hard to your barometer of hard work, be satisfied. If you reflect and find every excuse to get feedback and grow, “all you can do” WILL start to flip kids. Skadoosh!

  4. ahem. did not read your link or your comments.

    you are a kickass teacher.
    1) anyone who voluntarily handles kids that age automatically gains respect in my book.
    2) the kids relate to/respond to you.
    3) YOU ARE AMAZING. NEVER FORGET THAT. i
