The school year hasn't even officially started and I am already feeling dread. I am literally sitting here in my classroom crying. I decided to come in a day early to start setting things up and the break down and lack of support and communication from my admin is already infuriating. I had the school year from hell last year and I was counting on this summer to relax, recharge, and become excited again about my profession. Instead I kept getting called in to facilitate meetings at school due to the nature of my position. So, I am coming in not feeling rested and recharged only to find out that another teacher took down some things that were set up in my classroom because they neglected to tell her that she was sharing the classroom with me this year. On top of that, I go into the main office to pick up some stuff and my P doesn't even say hello, welcome back, or acknowledge my existence. That was just the straw that broke the camel's back for me. I have not been teaching long at all but I feel like I have become the cynical, burnt out teacher that I promised myself I would never become. I am too young for this. I am envious of newer teachers and their excitement and enthusiasm. I wish I could have mine back. I want to find my love for teaching again. This is not a great way to start the year. Has anyone experienced this before? Is this unusual?
