You are Not ALONE!
Many teachers have a constant fear that they are not doing enough. We often compare ourselves to others in our school building , district, and even state. It is important to remember we are all in this together. No one goes into the teaching profession to be rich and famous. We are ALL here for the scholars. Be sure to rely on your team members to help you through, when you are struggling to stay a float. Everyone has felt overwhelmed at some point in their teaching career. It is completely normal. Just know you are not ALONE. In this issue there are several suggestions, for finding help with developing lesson plans and enhancing lessons in your classroom, while building valuable relationships that can help you with your sanity.
