You are a new teacher. You are wondering what has hit you. Here are my thoughts for you.

Things will get better.

The first year of teaching is so, so hard. You don't even know why it's so hard -- you can't wrap your head around that because you're in survival mode.

It's so hard because you are being asked to push your heart and mind and body in ways you never have. You are making thousands of decisions each day, and there are big parts of you that know you don't know what you're doing. So you question the decisions you're making each day (questioning is good, it is) but that questioning also makes you feel tired and insecure. It will get better. You're just overloaded.

You're learning so much (I know you can't even recognize this because you're so tired) but it'll sink in as the months pass.
Nothing will ever be as hard as the first year.

Does anyone else have a message for new teachers?
