Feeling unhinged; that Geography class I am teaching keeps bearing on my mind. I feel so solely responsible for them, those few boys in my class. I want to relinquish sole-responsibility, I don't want to be the only one for them.
I think about the hot classroom, how dirty it is, how unlike my own home where I normally teach. I think about not being easily able to show them videos and pictures to help me in my teaching because there is no computer, no projector. I think about the very limited resources I have to help them wholly.
I feel like giving up before I have barely started; should I trust that feeling? Or should I bear on in it?
