Okay, I admit it...today has been a rough day. I was praying hard at 9:10, only 40 minutes had passed since school began. I'm struggling with wanting the end of the year so badly, but yet knowing that I am unsure of how much I have helped these kids this year. I know they are stronger readers and writers than when they entered and hopefully, some have been challenged. It's just been rough and I don't know what started it all...thankfully, tomorrow is Friday and I am going to arrange centers so students can have independent work.
Teachers, how do you cope with the end of the year blues, when behavior from students seems to keep getting worse? Thanks for all possible responses!
