“Being a teacher is an emotional roller coaster. We cannot “leave it at work or leave it at home.” We deal with children. We care about each and every one of them. Teachers spend more time with our students than their parents spend with them. Brutal, but honest. I have a son. I know his teacher sees him more than I do. We carry your child’s emotions with us. I hear about heartbreaks, failing classes, and even trouble at home. How could I leave a situation like “My girlfriend gave our baby up for adoption without telling me” or “My mother keeps selling my shoes to get money for drugs?” and just report this and push it from my mind? How can I teachMacbeth, when I know why the boy in the back is near tears? I wish I could figure it out and if you can, please let me know. We carry guilt with us. It is hard to balance work and home with just one or two kids to worry about. Imagine having to worry about thirty or even seventy-five.”
