Thanks for your honesty and vulnerability. Teaching is a hard job. No day seems quite repeatable. We make thousands of decisions every day and even small shifts can be big variables in how a particular lesson/interaction goes. I think being open to reflecting on what is working and what isn’t shows that you have a high level of committment to your work. We ulimately want to feel successful in the acts that we put so much love and struggle and thought to. I think many teachers have been in a place similar to where you are. And yes, students are different. They are coming of age in a world with really different norms and realities. Thanks for being a part of this community. I am looking forward to being in a shared space with people like you.
