Thank you all! I've had a lot of friends tell me it all kind of clicks in your third year as well. I feel very comfortable with the people I work with, and we all get along great. They've never really talked down to me as a newer teacher. In fact, many of them come to me for advice/venting/solutions. By about the second week of my first year I was having to remind them that I didn't know what "we did last year." It's just the teaching aspect :lol: The reasoning behind the third year thing makes sense. A friend and I who started together joke that we're repeating our first year this year because we're doing so many thing differently. Maybe by next year we'll have it figured out.
