This. Over and over again. I was talking to @themagnoliateacher about having major teacher guilt this year. I can’t do it all. So when I see teachers on IG with drool worthy, perfectly organized classrooms, and I look at my mess, I feel like a failure. When I see teachers turning their classrooms into literal Disneyland for one lesson and I manage to fall asleep at 9pm before even reviewing the next day’s plan, I feel like the worst teacher in the world. I’m SO grateful for the inspiration and motivation on here to be the teacher these kids deserve (cause, dang, some of y’all are crazy amazing!) but man, sometimes it can be overwhelming. I can’t do it all. And I need to give myself grace. Something has to give and I would be lying to myself if I thought being a good teacher meant neat classrooms, weekly classrooms transformations and expensive holiday goody bags. Grace abounds, teacher friends. And happy Friday!
