Karolina, it is so great to hear from a "beginning teacher". I have to tell you, I still feel like a beginning teacher most days, and that is part of what makes teaching so thrilling for me. Even if I recycle the same lesson or unit, it always feels so different with a different group of students. My students constantly challenge me to redefine, recreate, and see the world differently, and that gift of constantly seeing the world with "new eyes" keeps me going. I also have to tell you -the second year is so much smoother than the first. I look forward to hearing more from you, Karolina. Best of luck with the unit!
