I am at a school that had not met AYP in 5 years. We miss it each year by 1 objective, due to our special ed population. I do not teach a tested grade, yet this year which is only my second I must keep a data notebook like everyone else (they are goals based I am not) that contains paper after paper of what kids are passing, how many days have they been absent/late, what the scores are on all their tests, why they aren't passing, what I am going to do to help them pass, How many books they are reading ect..., Since this is my second year I also have a ton of work to do that goes along with getting my professional certificate. I am ready to pull out my hair. Last week meetings started with the P that last about 1 hour in which he grill's you on everything, like why your kids are reading below grade level. My school has very low parent involvement, so if I were to say "Johhny is reading below level b/c his mother does not read with him at home or help him with hw ect" that would not be a good enough answer. I am sooooo rundown and stressed out. I have literally slept all weekend long. I am single with no kids and I feel sorry for the other teachers who are neglecting their families.. okay now that I have ranted, does anyone have any suggestions on how to make my body feel better? I am taking a multivitamin, and trying to eat right but I dont feel like cooking after working so hard after school each day. I am too young to get burned out!
