The surprises are constant. Like the students who never look engaged making progress after so much time encouraging and pushing them, or leaving them alone (cause hovering can also not work). There are so many limitations on how I can support my kids, it’s frustrating to see them fall behind when I know there’s a lot out of their control contributing to that.
But they’re learning! Now I just have to figure out what I can do to help them not fail (in the eyes of county testing system).
Also just like, burnout. Like the teachers, the students, administration. Thank goodness for winter break because us dealing with each other so much is draining.
