There’s a really old quote that I believe describes the situation you are in right now, “The difficult we do immediately, the impossible will take a little longer.” You’ve already done the difficult and you have done it with enthusiasm and patience and love for your students.
And right now you are working on the impossible, and I’m sure you are going to master that as well.
On the days that you feel overwhelmed and feel like you don’t have all of the answers, reach out to others. Don’t let yourself feel isolated or alone in this work. There are too many ways to connect with others who are working on the same impossible you are working on.
And remember your closest support might just be the students sitting in your classroom. Ask for their suggestions. Ask them what they think might work better. You might be surprised at how they respond.
And remember, there are lots of people out here who know you are being asked to do the impossible, but we believe in you – you REALLY ARE not alone.
Have a great day!
