How to get back on track from a bad year.
This is my 3rd year-1st year in K-great year! The next 2 have been in 2nd--My first year I had very low kids due to the district podding students by ability--this year I have students that are higher than last years kids- yet about half my class is a mix of esl and sped..basically admin. expects higher on unit assessments yet myself and the support staff that comes in does not see how I am to get there... And I have had great growth from each test this year. I have always had great reviews and felt supported till this year. Since September it seems I have been in a snowball effect and things just seems to keep getting worse! I have felt targeted--so much of what has happened has not made sense to me. I am getting out of this district at the end of the school year and I know deep inside I am a great teacher but my confidence is so beat down I just am not sure how to go about getting it back??
