This is a wonderful site and will help others gain ideas not only for thier children, but for their students. I love the students I work with and I love my children. I work for Head Start and we deal with the social emotional aspect of teaching. I find being a parent has made me a better teacher and a better Mom. It's also helped me understand parents and some of the stresses they may have. It's important the parents understand you can't always be perfect and we do make mistakes.
However one issue I do find myself having is...after working with 20 children and having a bad day, it's hard to face the duties at home. It's almost like round two of kids.
If any other teachers find themselves in that spot I would love to hear from someone who understands!!
