I am a teacher, and I am struggling to keep my faith. My students are from a very high poverty community. Fighting is valued over school. Material goods are valued over school. I don’t know if I am reaching them.
I love these babies. I just need the extra spiritual support. I am expected to have them make certain scores on state tests; however, they are so distraught from their home lives they can’t focus on their work. It’s a catch 22!
