First year teacher here! I’m feeling so burnt out to the point where I’m looking into other careers. I love what I do but it takes such a toll on me. Will this feeling go away after the 1st year?

Teachers- do you have any bball fans in your class? If so, consider reading Kobe Bryant's "Dear Basketball" or "Letter to my Younger Self". I had no idea these pieces existed.

How do you go about bringing the topic of “snitching?” Students are retaliating in my class, which allows for bullying to happen even more. Sadly...

Does anyone else get super nervous for parent-teacher conferences? I guess I've had too many traumatic experiences (being screamed at/disrespected by a parent)

Random question what are your favourite shoes to teach in? My sneakers are starting to wear out and these are my second pair and I'd like to know of some other good ones? Preferably neutral nonsneaks!
