2. To be honest my classroom is now a disaster. Planning is incredibly time consuming and I am still concerned about skills children need not being taught. After years of being a successful teacher, I feel I am a novice again-only this time I am married with kids and so my time and energy are at a premium.
3.I learned a lot about many good things but I am left with thoughts of confusion. I am pulled in directions-global learning, passing reading benchmarks, STAAR, Stanford, good thinking skills, etc.
Hopefully this anxiety will dissipate over time.
