I have 5 years left to teach and am so burned out. What can I do?
I have 5 classes of 30 seventh grade students every day for reading. Most of my students have been passed on from previous grades and are significantly below reading level. Since they have been passed on from last year, they feel they will also be passed on this year. There is very little actual parental support. Parents say they will talk with their child, but the conversation is ineffective. I no longer have the hunger to teach or the desire for classroom management. I can not afford to retire and don't want to be a 'quitter'. Any ideas?
