No- I am not struggling, some of my students are. We deal daily with kids who do not have enough. The enough that I worry about the most is emotional support.Several of the kids are on an edge and I can feel it. When they are, they act out in certain ways. Not as many smiles, a sharp word to a usual friend, walkingaway from a teacher greeting. Slowly my team attempts to work through the situations.
I even hate to let them go for the two weeks of Christmas break.
Nope- I am not depressed- I am frustrated- but hopeful.
The baby is walking and I will get to see him in ten days! There is always hope. That is what our Lady of Guadalupe means to me- hope in the winter.
