I'll be a first year teacher come August. I'm teaching a difficult subject and I've been out of course work for a while and I want to get my footing and try to figure out things my first year. My district wants me to teach AP also, but I'm not sure I'd be able to do that on top of everything else. I have a terrible habit of putting too much on my plate too fast. Is teaching AP very difficult? Should I probably wait until next year?
