Hello, all! I am in my second year of teaching high school. Overall, things are going quite well. I get along well with the vast majority of my students and generally love what I do. I am also usually an extremely positive, energetic person/teacher. However, I definitely have days where things don't go so well in two of my classes and I find it difficult to maintain a positive attitude. I have occasionally found myself (unintentionally) being a bit short with students in the aforementioned classes. There is no yelling involved or anything, but my lack of patience in those situations definitely comes through. I am not proud of this and am actively trying to work on my responses. I feel absolutely awful afterwards. Do any of you have advice for dealing with this issue? How do you step back and make sure that you are approaching students with your best attitude? Thank you so much in advance for your advice.
