“I get by with a little help from my friends.”
That statement means more and more to me being in the teaching field. As I have mentioned in the past, I work at a title 1 school. Meaning, a majority of our kids come from lower-income families. So, needless to say, we have our fair share of discipline problems and some days are a lot harder than others.
Last year, I started out with a great group of teacher friends who helped me settle in the teacher life and gave me guidance along the way. This year, we have a new group of teachers who I can help and give advice to.
Recently, I have had some really rough days in general, not just with teaching. These select few ladies and gentlemen I work with help me keep my head held high and a smile on my face.
Without them, I truly believe the teaching life would have gobbled me up and spit me out, right on my tush.
I hear of friends who work at other schools and say they don’t really get along with or get to know their coworkers. That baffles me. Perhaps it is just certain schools hiring like minds, but my school has an amazing staff that help everyone and keep everyone sane, especially when middle school drama is around every corner.
So, this short little blog post is to say thank you to my teacher friends who keep me sane and support me more than I deserve! You are the best and I am truly thankful to have you in my life. ❤
*Also, Stephanie forgive me…but the Grumpy Cat photo was going to waste so I figured this was a good opportunity to use it.
