It really does.
Teachers, especially lower grades, feel the pressure of the upcoming testing season. It is open season on my stress and anxiety. Thankfully I have wonderful administrators and co-workers. It truly is the nature of the beast.
I have almost stopped and deleted this post 3 times already because I am so overwhelmed by it all. I really, really worry about my kids every year, this year is especially bad. They are a low group, I started late, and my support teacher is often sick.
I just want to do everything right by them.
I feel like I am failing...
