Teaching in a low income school My schools is 98% free/reduced lunch. I really do love my job teaching lower elementary. However, do any other teachers feel like they are just constantly nagging the students in low income schools? These children take so much out of you. They have so much needs that are not being met and sometimes it feels impossible to help. I feel like management is more apart of my day than teaching, but I expected that. I was just wondering if other teachers in low income schools felt this way? I feel like in my other experiences I've never had to be that nagging teacher. What I absolutely love about teaching in a low income school is that the students come to school so excited and happy. They may have a hard life, but that's all that they know. I always remind myself if they are happy and ready to be there after everything they go though I must be positive, patient and ready to teach!
