Hey all! I really need some help. I am just getting ready to go back to school after a much needed holiday break. My stress level is already going up. For the past three nights I have not slept because of nightmares of going back. I think I can really love to teach...but that is not the case at all right now. I am at the point where I am about to leave because I am not at all a healthy person (I have lost 20lbs since starting, I am stressed beyond belief, and I don't think I have slept soundly since August) I feel like my kids don't listen to me at all. I try to line them up to go to specials and it takes me 5 minutes for them to quiet down. They are a bunch of chit chatters and I feel like I am not getting any work done because I am constantly trying to quiet them down. I have been losing my patience with them and they can see it. I really don't want to be an unhappy teacher...someone please give me some much needed advise. I would really appreciate it.
