I'm at a point
I hold back tears
that are inevitably coming.
I'll see that light
at the end of this dark tunnel.
I can just hold on
And pray I'll make it through-
Everyone has always said your first year of teaching is the hardest. I expected it. But there are just some things that you can't be prepared for.
Please pray that I will continue to love what I'm doing ... and that my enthusiasm will outweigh my exhaustion. That my 12 hours a day in the classroom will pay off. That my countless hours planning at home will be evident in the implementation of my lessons.
And most importantly, that i will reach each child where they are at, and help them achieve what I know is in each one of them.
