Hi all, I am just wondering how long it took fellow teachers to become comfortable and more knowledgeable with your content. What was it like your first year? Did you have to teach yourself, too? I feel like I am teaching myself the majority of the content before going into class. I have three different grade levels with very different content areas and I am struggling to stay afloat. I've been taking it day by day (which works well), but I am not anywhere near effective or engaging as I hoped to be. The administration is looking to lower the number of teacher preps next year, and I hope this will make a difference. Any support would be appreciated. Constantly questioning myself and my desire to be in the classroom!
