I think it was safe to say that I definitely was here:
and I had NO idea how, or if, I would ever make it back up the ladder! And then I started reading teacher blogs. You guys have no idea how you have changed my life! I was seriously considering quitting my job; not finding it rewarding or worth it anymore. But now I have a new outlook. I love reading all about the things you do in your classrooms, and all the fun activities you share. I love getting new organziation techniques, and reason to get up in the morning!
So THANK YOU! I know I would not be feeling this way if it hadn't been for you!
