Yes I feel the same way!

And I don't miss the little darlings, not yet anyway. I was so frazzled and beat down by them that I was glad to have a break from them. Of course I didn't want to get the break like this. Teaching...

I agree, we need a mental health check-in


I am trying to take it one day at a time. When the day is over let it go. I myself need to find all the positives that I possibly can. This has been a rough year. But there is light at...

I teach 5th grade. This is my 20th year.

I feel exactly as you described. Teaching

whole class is very exhausting. My advice or I should say, what I am trying to accomplish is to change the way I teach. I have split my class into 3 groups of 7. I am very lucky to only have 21...

TPT site

Is anyone else experiencing problems with the TPT site?

For the past couple of weeks the site is always freezing up and I can't print or download what I need. It is very frustrating!

I would try using probiotics AND prebiotics

to clean everything out! Your gut flora is key to being healthy. Seriously, I went through something similar two years ago. And since then I take two probiotics every day. I also make sure to eat...

Yes unfortunately

I couldn't sleep last night. I feel rested and now the anxiety is creeping in. I have been trying to go to bed at 11 and up at 7 in the morning, and that has helped. Except last I was not tired...

Summerwillcom is absolutely correct!

Use this experience to get the kids to focus on something other than their looks. I really wish someone had convinced me when I was 16 to not wear makeup! Because now I am a slave to it in my late...

Can I ask if you do your 2 20 minute groups first thing? Then do your whole class lesson? I was just looking at Jennifer Finley's website and she also suggests doing exactly how you mentioned. I...

observation coming up on January 18th. I am making myself sick over it. I can't make a decision about what I should teach?! It's insane that I do this to myself. For me even after 18 years it...
