Thank you for your thoughtful response. Hearing another’s story certainly helps bring my own into perperspective. I love my job too. It’s the kids. Helping them unlock doors that are in their way is the most rewarding thing on earth.
I am grateful for my job. It fits me well and allows me breathing space since I’m not in the general classroom. I am with kids for maybe 30 minutes at a time. And in those brief periods I give them my all.
