Thanks for sharing, Keisha! Your feelings are very normal for teachers who care deeply for their students. Know this isn’t a bad thing, it’s just a side effect, so to speak, of your position. Also, you can know that you are doing so much good for your students. Who would they go to if they didn’t come to you with their worries and challenges? You haven’t caused these issues, but by being there, you are doing something about them. You’re doing a great job. Just remember that, and continue to seed your conversations with your mainstream teaching colleagues about their responsibilities for teaching ELs. Hopefully, you’ll begin to see more fruit from those seeds soon!
