I see a lot of great first year teachers. I think in a way its easier for them because they start out with all the demands and just accept that's the way it is. I keep feeling I can't keep up, and...

I think it would be rude to ask any detailed questions. If it comes up accidentally just say, “I have called it off and don’t wish to discuss it further.”

I’m sorry this has happened.

I'm new to fifth, but just left a second grade position that used Engage NY. Singvogel gave a pretty accurate assessment. Parents also had quite a learning curve at first. But it grows on you.
