I have always loved teaching, I have always felt very blessed to be doing something that I love every day, but this year (my 6th year of teaching) I am experiencing teacher burn out. Even though I have 34 kids, they are good, well behaved for the most part. I know that the rediculous focus on state testing has gotten me down a bit, but this is something more than that. Would some of you more experienced teachers please tell me that this will pass, and that I will love going to work again, hopefully sooner rather than later. At this point I am sitting here near tears, knowing that I have to get going and get myself in there again today.
