In just about six hours, cards will be received by parents for the first time for SY 2015-2016. I can’t sleep still. I am really scared about the Math grades I gave especially to Grade 9. I wish I could change them. One of the things I learn is that being a teacher, I have to be dishonest. I hate it. But in the end, should a student fail, we are to blame. There are a lot of stuffs going through my head now, now that I haven’t slept yet. Just checked our second long test and the pattern of non-performing students continues. I would love to give them a failing grade on the limits that I had have done my part to re-teach the subject. I find teaching taxing. I find teaching Math taxing. How do I solve this problem? I admit being on the verge of giving up. However, there is still this fire desiring to improve on my classroom instruction and management, assessments, feed backs and follow ups. I don’t think I have the courage to give up when I have set my feet to this teaching path. These are all normal for beginning teachers. I will not let anything or any one take away my dream. I will improve. I will grow. I will learn. I will be a better version of a teacher.
