Do you ever feel like you could be a really amazing teacher if only you had the time? I feel pretty good in general, but I always feel like I am playing catchup. If things are going well at school, all it takes is a discipline issue to subvert the hard work I’ve done. Or a fire drill, or a technology glitch, or any number of crazy things that can happen every day!
Not to mention the demands on my time that I post learning targets, create formative assessment tools, submit lesson plans, report athletic eligibility, yadda yadda.
How do YOU balance it all? Do you accept “good enough” as good enough? Do you feel frustrated like me that you can’t soar as high as you’d like because of all the limitations of your situation?
I just need like 5 extra hours in my day and I think I can do it!
