could "cloud" the issue. You first year and in all those
schools............good heavens, no wonder you're a bit stressed out! At any
rate, my heart goes out to you. Like some of the other responses that you've
had....we've been in similar situations and I reiterate, think about being
there at all your schools for the kids and not the faculty.....sorry to say
but the stigma of being the teacher's break will always be our "cross to
bear" but with time and experience, you'll learn to have DEAF ears and go
about your business. Let the children that you teach, "tell the tale" to the
rest of the school. Just give it time and write us for help. I taught since
'69 and all grade levels so if you need some guidance or a shoulder to cry me privately.
