A Duck on Water

The best analogy I have for my first year of teaching was being like a duck on the water. From the surface, a swimming duck looks peaceful, calm, natural, and composed. As a new teacher I've been commended for my positive energy and fantastic organizational skills. What people don't see is everything under the surface: I'm paddling my flippers as fast as they can go just to stay afloat!
