I have posted the short version of my story below. The long version of my story is in the thread quoted following this. Read all of my posts in it to get a much better explanation of what has led to my question at the end of this post. http://forums.atozteacherstuff.com/showthread.php?t=167684 The short version of my story is that after four years out of education and seven years out of the classroom, I took a job teaching kindergarten, a grade I had always shied away from in the past. However, after the interview, I just felt like I belonged there, so I took the job. Things began going wrong almost immediately. I struggled with classroom management, something I had never had a problem with before. I began to have panic attacks. Thankfully, these only happened at home. I was put on a growth plan because of how bad my evalution was. I had not had any bad evaluations in my other teaching job. My anxiety levels were always high when I was a work, and not much better when I was at home. After ten weeks I quit. No two week warning, just an email and a resignation letter. Looking back on it now, it was the right decision for me. It was also a painful one. I have begun subbing in another district and it is really helping me get my confidence back. I know that in the right environment I can do well. I cannot guarantee to anyone that what happened this fall won't happen again, but I don't think it will. Especially if I take a job in a grade I feel confident about. I want to teach again this fall, but I don't know how to put what happened with the kindergarten job on my resume or how to explain it to a principal or other teachers. Do you have any recommendations?
