|I want to buy this or make a t-shirt!|
I know that last year, I was very stressed out at school and felt very defeated. I was going home at night and would tell my husband all about my day. As some of you may know, spouses don't really want to hear about all of your 'kid' problems after they have worked all day! (Of course, he listened and he was great, . . . but still . . .) I was also talking in my sleep (apparently) and dreaming about what I was going to do the next day.
My best friend was so worried that I might quit teaching, she talked to the principal about how she might be able to get some help in my room! (That's a BEST friend, don't you think?)
However, when I started checking out some of the amazing teacher blogs that are out here, I started to get some of that excitement for teaching back. And then, Pinterest came along . . . Oh my! Lots and lots of pictures to really get my gears going.
It makes me sad that teachers feel blamed, degraded, overworked, . . . and the list goes on and on. I know that I still get a little overwhelmed with all that is being asked of us, but then I look at the little faces in front of me . . . where else can you touch so many lives and perhaps make an impression that will change a life.
You have to see this video about classroom super heroes!
Are you a super hero? Are you like Superman when the politicians come in with their Kryptonite? Have teacher blogs, Pinterest, TpT, Teacher's Notebook, etc. helped rejuvenate you?
I would love to know how you feel about teaching . . .
Is your morale at an all time low?
Let's hear it for the TEACHERS, without which, there would be no other profession!
