I have about 4 weeks till school is starting, about 40 hours of in classroom work to do, physical work, and I am just not feelin' it. I don't want to do it! I have had physical issues and emotional stresses the past 2 years, loss of stamina and patience and creativity and enjoyment of the children. I look at lesson plans from 5 years ago, and I was setting the world on fire in that classroom, having a blast, and doing lots of extra fun stuff with the kids.Last year was totally bare bones and I got off track in some areas that are important to me, left some things unfinished which are the reason I teach -- what is up? If any of you have gone through this, or if you have any insight, I would love to hear it. I have always thought that when a teacher loses her love of teaching and enjoyment of children, it is time to go. But I am in a position that I have to keep working for the time being. Thanks everyone.
