  1. My first year of teaching felt like hell, and there were times when I was tired and upset with myself and overly critical of my abilities. I actually told my colleagues that it would be better for the kids if I quit and let an experienced teacher handle the class, because then they could learn more. My colleagues told me that the first year of teaching was about me, not the kids, and not to stress about their performance or anything like that. I made it through that year and I’m into my 4th year this year coming and I’m loving my job. 🙂 Lesson learnt – things get better.

      I am so glad you didn’t quit! It is definitely a job that needs an adjusting period, and it’s great to hear you made it through and are still going! I agree with focusing on you during your first year – you need time to get used to the whole paradigm.
