There are the days which seem to fly by, where things go right.
And then there are the days you are stretched thin.
Your energy levels are low, your patience in short supply and your ability to empathise diminished.
There are instances where you find yourself wondering am I being too reactive? Too quick to judge? Not listening enough?
Then take a step back.
The kids are quietly engaged. One of them repeats a joke…
The days where y are stretched thin are the best to judge the strength of the classroom environment.
