Dear Helen, I understand that concept of soldering on. It’s my every day. Right now, I’m teaching two different but very needy groups of children(English learners primarily recently arrived from Ukraine and special education students). Unfortunately, one of my supervisors constantly schedules meetings and asks me to do things that take away from the English learners, who are struggling because they have very limited understanding of English. There’s no one I can talk with about the situation, and I’m feeling overwhelmed and stressed—and alone. I don’t know what Steve would say. It’s very lonely. My children don’t understand why I agreed to this in the first place. I honestly don’t know what to do anymore. Thank you all for listening. I’m completely lost again, with no Steve. I do talk with him daily. But it’s not the same.
