You know how people say, those who can’t do, teach? Well f*** that! Teaching is an extremely challenging job and not just anyone can do it! (Is what I try to tell myself when I’ve convinced myself that maybe I’m not good at what I do).
Why am I here?
Teaching is something I’ve always known I wanted to do. There are days when I feel really knowledgable and empowered, but there are other days when I question getting out of bed. I started this blog because I want to create a space to be open and vulnerable about my own mental health as part of my teaching experience. It’s comments like the above that get me stuck inside my own head. In my 6 years of teaching, I’ve had extremely low lows due to negative and anxious thoughts. I’m here to share with the world how anxiety and depression affects me as an educator and to hopefully share some useful lessons and tips along the way!
