And no matter how many years you teach ( I just finished year 13), there is always more to learn.<br />BUT, I promise, you already have what you need to become the best - you "WANT TO". <br />The important thing is to not beat yourself up with thinking "I could have, should have..."- you did the best you could with what you had. And next year will be so much easier!<br />I think there are two keys - Remember what you are teaching - kids (not math or algebra - kids) and never stop learning more.
