    It's been awhile since I posted on here-real life gets in the way-but feeling some emotions tonight that I need to let off my chest. Lately, I have been comparing myself to another teacher and the things she does in her classroom. She's a first year teacher and has a higher group of kiddos . The things they are accomplishing are amazing. My group, on the other hand, are much lower. They're awesome kiddos and I love them dearly. However, I look at some of the things the other group is accomplishing and I get down. This is my 10th year teaching, and I know my kiddos are growing and doing good things at their own pace and will get there eventually. I just need reminders of that.

    I know this is just a passing season, and I will let these feelings go..just needed to write it out. Hope everyone has a good holiday season!

    No comparing! Teachers are different. We teach differently. That teacher has her style and you have yours.
