Some days I get home from work and this is how I feel.
The hardest part of being a teacher is the part that no one ever tells you about when preparing for it: the personal investment.
You will put your heart and soul in to the students you work with. And sometimes, you get beaten down. Sometimes you have to forget who you used to be to get them through it.
And sometimes, you have to go the tough guy route.
I just need a little more energy. Just a little longer.
