Six Word Saturday

Which straw is one too many?

For more Six Word Saturday participants, click here.

This seems to be a very stressful year for everyone I know in teaching, regardless of where you are.

In my own school, the people who are supposed to make us "better" seem to go out of their way to add to the stress when just a few seconds more or a little more thought would make something positive rather than negative.

How do you know when you are ready to completely lose it, to fold up in the corner, sucking your thumb and babbling incessantly?

Because that time seems very close.

Sometimes we all feel like we are gonna "lose it"!!!
Hope the stress dies down soon.

Have a Happy Saturday!

Across the board. It's the same way in nursing too. I feel for you.

I'm not a teacher but I know all too well the panic attacks and the feeling of defeat when so many things pile on and I feel like I can't handle even one more thing. Especially when, as you've pointed out, it would take very little additional effort to make life easier rather than more difficult. Hang in there!
