Well it's that time. Or pretty close...You know what I'm talking about-or you wouldn't be reading my blog LoL!
As we all brace ourselves for another school year, blogs have become our go-to resource, haven't they?
With that said, I have a confession to make.
Sometimes I read your sweet blogs and I feel completely inadequate as a teacher! And knowing how I feel, I can bet I'm not the only one. (& just for the record, this has nothing to do with all those fantastic blogs out there-it's all me!)
So, I thought I would share some of my inadequacies to help us all feel better, mmmmk?
Downfall #1. I buy desk tags from the teacher store-I don't make my own.
Downfall #2. I've written one and only unit and posted it on TPT. And it was so time consuming that I will probably never make another one!
Downfall #3. I don't make my own graphics and create fantastic printables.
Downfall #4. Sometimes I don't have a fantastic lesson planned and I just wing it.
Downfall #5. I don't sit on the floor with my students and whole-brain teach them all day long. (although I love to use those strategies in small spurts:))
Downfall #6. I do not have a color coded classroom library (though it is my dream:))
Downfall #7. My classroom doesn't look all Pinterest-y
These are just a few of my million shortcomings. And ya know what? None of them matter. What does matter is that I love my students and teaching with all my heart-so much so that I would do it for free (well, maybe part-time LoL). I will always look for ways to be a better teacher. I'm so thankful for all of your blogs that inspire me!
Feel free to comment with some of your inadequacies! Think of it as a little back to school therapy :).
