Re: moving from school to school...


Date: Fri Mar 15 2002 - 07:30:36 PST

For four years, I had two schools with approximately 1050 kids total to
teach. It was stressful, exhausting and frustrating. I never felt like I
belonged anywhere and getting projects finished was a struggle. I did the
same lesson at both schools most times so that meant packing up all my
resources and lessons at the end of each week for the next school. I had a
huge dolly with a box attached and two large bags I used. It was difficult to
find the time to teach everything I knew I should and I always felt rushed.
This year is my first full time and it's wonderful. I still teach about 550
students and only see them once a week, but it's a vast improvement over two
schools. The kids are learning so much more and I feel like a part of their
life. Janet
