Hi, First any and all help will be welcome. I am I guess a third year first time teacher. Situation: Originally hired at start of 4th quarter to replace a teacher who couldn't handle the classroom (5th/6th) Year 2 My first full year teaching stumbled a bit but felt semi confident had some trouble with communicating with parents but overall did o.k. Year 3 Pushed up to middle school (7th/8th) and the middle school does a lot of project based learning, I also teach math, science, health, PE, (getting out of that start of 2nd quarter PE that is). I team teach with a teacher who had taught English in Japan but is not a licensed teacher (we work in private school). She grew up going to this school and her mom is in the administration. I feel very much like she judges me constantly and doesn't have my back in anything. Has even contradicted me in front of students (which it turned out I was right). Since the onset of this year I have felt overwhelmed, paranoid, horribly under qualified, and harassed by administration. Prior my experience in this school had been wonderful. I should note that I don't have a strong background in Math. Obviously I did college math but, I feel very ignorant in the math I teach in Middle School. (I am learning every lesson about a week in advance.) I feel like I have forgotten everything I did in college, how to write curriculum, how to put together a rubric etc. etc. I am feeling so lost and overwhelmed. I'm thinking about leaving. On top of all of this I am now having licensing issues. I have never had a mentor teacher and was just thrown in and it was sink or swim. I need help.
