Mental Health and Support

I am a second year teacher and I have a pretty tough group this year. I am feeling major burn out. I love my career and it is truly rewarding but I am genuinely struggling. Any suggestions are welcome

Second year is tough. You miss the first year students, you don't quite love the second year students yet. It might get better by the end of the year. Make sure your expectations for yourself are reasonable. Make sure you're taking time for you. Don't be afraid to use sick days for mental health days. It gets better though, at least it did for me. Im in my 3rd year. Beginning of the year is tough for me because I don't yet feel the same love for my new kids as I did for the old.

It’s also just that time of year when the energy of the beginning of the year is wearing off
