11: One Tired Teacher: Anxiety and ADHD in an Alternative School: A New Teacher Story
This week on One Tired Teacher, I sit down with Amanda a 2nd-year teacher who has begun her teaching journey in an alternative school 6th-8th grade. Amanda shares some of her challenges with students who are often feeling left behind or overlooked. The ESE population is substantial, and many students struggle with ADHD and or Anxiety. We as listeners, get a brief look at a challenging situation.
I have always believed that no matter what part of your teaching path, we can still learn from one another. I also think that listening to teachers who are at the beginning of their journey helps season teachers better understand perspective and next steps in regards to professional development. It becomes clear that new teachers and veteran teachers need more tools in their toolbox in regards to how to help children who struggle with all types of learning barriers. So I hope you will join me as we listen in to this conversation between myself and Amanda.
