I'm curious how it worked out?

I'm sorry you were dealing with depression and anxiety during student teaching! Do you think it was the nature of student teaching and wouldn't be a problem once you're not under a microscope constantly and have your own classroom?

What do you think makes you anxious? Was it situational? Was your teaching philosophy in line with your mentors? Is the depression triggered by being overly anxious? Have you seen a mental health professional about it?

Anxiety can be thought of as triggered by caring too much. Qualities that make one anxious and depressed on the flip side are the qualities that make a good teacher when they are balanced.
