**WARNING: This post is going to mostly come off as a stream of consciousness as I am mostly just venting** For the most part, I LOVE teaching blogs. I love gaining so many new ideas and just taking a peek into the classrooms of teachers around the world. However, lately I find myself comparing myself to these teachers. This ends with me feeling inadequate, creative, and like I possibly chose the wrong career. When I look at the centers and the activities, all I think is, "Do I really suck since I haven't even started centers yet after six weeks due to behaviors?" I follow a second year teacher, and I become so envious of how easy she is making it all seem. She had so many great ideas her first year as well. Will this ever come easy for me? Am I just not a natural teacher? These rooms just look so inviting and enriching, and then I feel bad for how my room looks. I start to feel that I am doing my students a disservice. Just once, I want all teacher bloggers to blog about a rough day, week, or even year just so I know that I'm normal. I need to know that I don't suck at my job just because some days I don't want to deal with my kids. I need to know that it will get better. I need to know that these teacher bloggers are NOT perfect and that they struggle as well. Ugh...I know this is so off the wall, but I just needed to get it off my chest. I just need to know if anyone else out there runs a classroom that is not "blog-worthy?"
