1st year of teaching ➡️ 2nd year of teaching
While there may be some physical change, the change you can’t see is entirely greater. .
I wish I could tell the girl on the left that the extreme stress and pressure wouldn’t last forever. That it was okay to not know if you’re teaching and saying the right things every second of the day. That asking for help and support from your colleagues was normal.
I learned an immense amount in my first year of teaching. I made mistakes, but they helped me grow. I learned exactly all the things I would do differently the next time. .
Fast forward to this year, I still don’t always exactly feel like I know what I’m doing. But I have a much better control of my thoughts, my emotions, and my body... and that’s the change I’m entirely grateful for. .
Loving yourself is the greatest revolution. 💕
