Too many outside factors that are out of my control are pushing what really matters to me off to the side. Each year it seems that I am incorporating less and less of my personal teaching touches into the classroom. It's beginning to feel more and more like a cookie cutter classroom where I am focused mostly on what everyone else tells me to focus on. Fitting more in is not an option anymore without squeezing out something.
I feel I am losing my uniqueness as a teacher. How can I be all in when I don't agree which then leaves me with only two options; speak up or give in.
I have done a lot of speaking up but it seems it is out of my control to change the movement. So, that leaves the option of acceptance. If that is the way then am I losing my personality?
