– From K. Brown –I’ve been teaching since 2003. I used to love teaching! Teaching on zoom during the Covid-19 pandemic killed my teaching joy. Now, we are back in the classroom and I have lost all desire to teach. I don’t know if I’m depressed or what is happening, but I loathe teaching. Every time I get in the car to come to work in the morning, I become filled with rage at the thought of another day in the classroom. I need a career change and I need to do something I love that the Lord has led me to. – Burned out Teacher.
