Hoping for Better Days

I really wanted to sit down tonight and share about how great it felt to be back in the classroom today and how excited I am for the year ahead... But that's simply not how it feels.

Today was a Terrible, Horrible, No-Good, Very Bad Day.

Sigh.

I knew this would be hard, but woah! I feel like a first-year teacher all over again. I'm questioning everything I thought I knew.

I'm exhausted... mentally, physically, and emotionally. I feel so defeated.

I'm desperately holding onto the hope that it will get better. It's the only thing that will propel me from my bed in the morning to try this another day.

More to come...
