Curriculum & Planning, Education, High Stakes Testing, Language Arts, Middle School


So I daily come to find that I have no idea what I am doing. I feel like I start over every single day. And not in a good, ‘oh it’s a fresh start’ kind of way. I feel like I start over every day, getting nowhere.

I have no idea if the other new teachers feel like this. Whenever we discuss what’s going on in our respective classrooms, I’m pretty sure we all skip over the not-so-hot stuff. Or maybe that’s just me.

I’m just pretty sure I’m drowning in EOGs and SMART and IB and AOI and ESL, DI, PLCs, SIP, PDP, and so on and so forth. And then add in the 8th graders.

I don’t even really want to talk about it. It kind of makes me feel sick inside.
