Hey, I'm alive

I've gotten a few messages asking if I were okay. I am..ish. I'm having a really tough year and my self care game is generally strong, but I'm taking a beating emotionally and physically. I do log in every now and again to mentor National Boards candidates. Between the chaos of my classroom, completing the required documentation/attending meetings, getting a sinus infection I can't shake, and being just plain old exhausted meant something had to give and it was hanging out online.

I love you all and miss you. Send me all the vibes to get through this. I am always the first to say "I love teaching! I have the best job in the world!" but it doesn't feel like it this year. Only 161 more days? xoxox

I hope your little people fall in line and/or get the proper environment to learn in sooner than later. I agree with the poster who said these are the years that really make us appreciate the good (better) years.

Glad to see you are back! Sorry this year is so challenging for you. Truly hope things start looking up for you. The worst thing about teaching is rough years can be extremely long and take a toll. One of the best things about teaching is you get to start fresh every year. This year will pass, even if it doesn't feel like it now.

I'm glad that you were able to check in on PT. (((Hugs))) The beginning of kindergarten is hard enough when there aren't any students with issues. Hang in there. You are a wonderful teacher! Your students are so lucky to have you. I hope you feel better.

That sounds dreadful, I am so sorry for you. It is amazing how soul-suckingly stressful teaching *can* be under a crap-cocktail of bad circumstances. You are typically the most positive person I "know" about teaching. Hugs to you.


But . . . what if my self-care game involves reading your posts on PT?



Sending you vibes and love.

Glad you are basically okay & hoping the sinus infection clears quickly. Hoping, too, that your year settles into an easier routine for you.

I'm happy to hear from you, but I'm sorry your year is not going well. Hopefully your documentation pays off and you can find a solution soon. PT is not the same when all of the "regulars" aren't posting!
