Would You Like Being a Student in Your Classroom?

It was a simple question really. "Would I like being a student in my own classroom?" It stopped me in my tracks.

Last year, when the students had left, the chairs had been put up, and the exhaustion hit, I realized that no, this was not the type of classroom I would have wanted to learn in. And so began a quest of soul-searching, revising, and rethinking, in order for myself not to become a statistic; another new teacher who quits.
