I’ve just completed a full-on week. I’ve taken both morning and afternoon classes on 3 days. For me, that’s a lot. I’ve relieved for another teacher, but it involved a lot of my own preparation for two sets of students.
On the last day, I was thanked for my lessons by several of them. I appreciate that. I know I made a difference. But also, I felt as if I’d run a marathon each day. I became mentally as drained as I became physically after walking the whole day long. Teaching is fine, yet it takes it out of me.
