What have I done?

 I just finished my second year as a middle school teacher. Not just middle school, but English. Not just middle school English, but Special Education. I have a Masters degree, but the State of Texas requires certification. I have taken and passed three exams (90 questions plus a 750-word essay), have three left. Then they’ll start my observation in the fall. I’m so tired, God help me.

One of my two is headed into 8th grade this fall. The other's going to be a Freshman. Two at that general age are enough of a handful; how do you manage an entire classroom full?

Resource class is usually 4-5 students, but all differentiated with IEPs. I co-teach the 6th, 7th and 8th grade classes that have mainstreamed kiddos. If I have to hear “Skibbidy toilet Ohio Sigma” again, I’ll scream. I hate TikTok.
