I MADE IT TO WINTER BREAK.
(And I've been waiting four long months to say that!)
I don't know if it's just the joy of the holidays, or if the fact that I got to sit in on a reading professional development session that opened my mind up to new possibilities (oh, how I miss teaching reading!), but for the first time so far this year I had a new, irrational thought that was terrifying and exciting all at the same time:
Maybe I'm not done here yet.
I got my Flat Stanley letters on Monday! I can't wait to take them in to the zoo!
Just wanted to let you know I spent the last hour or so reading back in your blog. I am in a similar position to yours--first year teacher in NYC--but also different--I'm teaching high school English. I am going through a lot of the same things as you, including illness and thinking I want to quit just about every day.
I've bookmarked your page for days when I need to know I'm not alone out there.
