Today teaching did not bring me joy.
Instead it brought me stress, frustration, and ultimately tears.... and that is okay.
I just read a post that says “Dear First Year Teachers, You’re not doing anything wrong. It’s just really 𝘵𝘩𝘢𝘵 hard.”
I feel like this post needs to be edited for all teachers, because whether it’s your first, fifth, or thirtieth year in the classroom—this job is 𝐡𝐚𝐫𝐝.
It’s okay to have a bad day or feel like you failed. All that matters is that you give yourself 𝘨𝘳𝘢𝘤𝘦 for even showing up in the first place and try again tomorrow 💕
