I’m doing things a bit differently this episode, and I’m opening up about the hardest teaching year I’ve had so far in my career. I explain the different factors that worked together to make it a perfect storm, and why I want to go back to the classroom with a refreshed and new perspective.
In this episode of Real Teacher Talk, I get vulnerable and share things that went on my last year of teaching (so far) both in my personal life and my professional life that contributed to it being a terrible year. I talk about some things I would have done differently, and share what I’ve learned since taking my leave of absence. A lot has changed in my life since that year!
While difficult years are simply a reality for anyone, I want to remind my listeners that these challenges are temporary and it won’t always be this hard.
In Today’s Episode We Discuss:
- How I juggled things going on in my personal life with an inflexible schedule
- How I managed having a stressful situation with a student teacher
- How I dealt with parents who had issues with me personally
- The signs I saw that told me to take a step back
