I'm a newer teacher and have my own, different style from her - which is fine, right?
Yes, absolutely!!


Quote:
My class size is double hers and she has 3x the outside help as I do; she also has nearly all high flyers.
There is something so wrong about this. How did this happen? How are at least the class sizes not the same?


Quote:
I typically stay an hour or so after school. She typically stays 4,5 hours and this is no exaggeration.
This will make you a better teacher and person in the long run! Stick to it!


Learn from her, but don't compare yourself to her. Continue loving your kids and doing what is best for both you and them. It's hard not to get down when you feel others see you as less, but keep focused on the fact that you also have great things going on.
