I'm a first year teacher and also an intern, so I haven't finished my credential coursework yet. I was planning on taking a full load of four classes this semester but my mentor teacher seemed pretty adamant on me dropping three of them because it would be too stressful. I still have a lot of school left ahead of me and I kind of wanted to get through it as quickly as possible. Am I setting myself up to fail? Last semester I subbed full time and took four classes and I was fine. Of course, having my own classroom is going to be much more work but I thought I could handle it. Am I being naive?
