Hey all! I just wanted to know is it normal in your second year of teaching to feel so lost and scattered?? I sometimes fear that I am doing my children a major disservice because I am still learning the ropes and don't know where to go sometimes. I get overwhelmed by do I work on regular curriculum or just their IEP goals. I have about 16 students grades k-4 this year. This is my first full year at this school. Last year I was split between two schools and then moved halfway through to an entirely new school. I just feel like I am drowning at times and could really use some direction or guidance to become better. I love my lil ones and really want them to reach full potential. Any stories or experiences that you could relate to? I also am new to the state I am teaching in and they do things very differently than Ohio where I grew up. I would appreciate any guidance. Is it normal to feel so not put together?
