All I know is that I'm at 227 as of Monday, which means I've gained about 7 lbs. in three weeks. I have had extreme stress at work to the point of writing my letter of resignation. I really don't want to quit, though - it would just give certain people "ammo" to "prove" that I wasn't cut out for it.
Luckily, I have a lot of support through Teach for America and my fellow corps members have really helped me through this. I took a personal day today and revamped my classroom plan, and I think - with a LOT of hard work - I can make my classroom the safe and happy place I want it to be. I will definitely need everyone's thoughts and strong prayers, though!
