Finding the motivation
where do you find the motivation to keep up with teaching handwork? how do you keep it interesting and fun for you and the kids.
when you are tired where do you find the strength to "hold" the class?
I found myself frustrated with a few kids today because they STILL just don't get it. we have been in school since Aug. and they should "get it" now.
Alas I was being mean and tired and had no will to be creative or understanding.
I'm not THAT big of a meanie but I do questions "WHAT THE HELL AM I DOING HERE"
now and again.
I have met teachers who are just sooooooo much fun to be around. They are funny and creative and positive ALLLLL the time.....Can I be YOU when I grow up?
Just being real....a moment of realism is a good thing
