I loved this post! I think it is so true for so many teachers including myself. I feel the better I get as a teacher - the more the pressure is on to keep pleasing, to keep up the standard I seem to have set as a good teacher. It gets so overwhelming that my life is often consumed by my job. I am a yes, yes, yes person! In education we work so hard but sometimes it never seems to be enough - there is always more to do - more to learn. The big lesson I guess is slow down liek you said and enjoy the ride. Thanks your words - they really hit home and it's great to know teachers you admire feel the same way:)
