This was an enlightening experience for reflection of my goals during this book study.
Itotally understand the panic zone with junior high! I taught one period of junior high last year and I get anxiety every time I think about doing in the future. I mean, like hands go numb, can't breathe anxiety! I was able to talk my way out of teaching junior high again next year and don't know if I can find the courage to try again. It's inspiring that it's something in your panic zone yet you want to conquer it! Kudos to you!
Thank you for sharing. I had similar feelings every time I walked in my teaching partners 8th grade class this year. My teaching partner is so good at junior high....I watched her and was mentored in how their minds work and how to level expections. I feel like the little engine that could, I keep saying, “I think I can, I think I can.” Time will tell.
I remember long ago saying "I never will step foot in a middle school classroom again." and here I am just having finished year 10 in the MS classroom. They're a unique group, that's for sure.
