“As a teacher, report card time is super hard for me. Every morning teachers are happily counting down the days to summer and I'm panicking that I haven't covered enough. They keep piling on more work but taking away the hours to do the work. It's no wonder we all have physical and mental health issues and there is a high rate of teachers quiting in the first 5 years. I wake up feeling panicked and have to take anxiety meds before school starts. And I'm actually in a good place mentally.”
