I don't even have the energy to complain about how much this school year is bruising my self-esteem. I wish I loved my job. I wish I could just teach and be a good teacher. I wish that I could relate better to 5th graders and work with them in a way that got them excited to learn. Even more than all of that I wish that I wasn't so exhausted from wishing that I could do more to actually do more.

Wish me luck, and I'll give real updates soon.
5th grade is hard.

Some days are good, some days are hell.
Sometimes I wonder if it worth all the hard work and stress but then I remember every teacher I have ever had (k-12) and whether I liked them or not, I learned something from them.
We'll see if I feel the same way next year :)

I'm sure you're just being extra hard on yourself. From everything that you have told me about what you teach and how you go about teaching it, I think you do a lot to reach those kids. Good luck. I hope this coming year isn't too hard on you.
