“First year teacher. Just had my first evaluation. The lesson went horribly. I feel like such a failure.. trying to remind myself that it’s my FIRST YEAR- my first month, for crying out loud- and it’s OKAY. I am competent, I am a good teacher, and I make a difference every day. There is always room for improvement and there will always be lessons that don’t go as planned. I need to embrace the struggles of teaching because they’ll never go away. It’s life.”
