I taught high school English (and filled in for history when needed).
how about you?
most recently I was teaching at an alternative hs here in manhattan. I loved it; less than 5 kids in a class, many with issues ranging from emotional to substance abuse. I so easily related and felt like I was doing something important, ya know? unfortunately, being that I've been in such a bad state, my absences were excessive. I even started weeping in front of a class recently, which is so embarrassing, but I just couldn't stop. told 'em it was allergies and that my eyes were stinging. needless to say, high schoolers, especially those with problems, know better.
probably should've messaged you, oh well!
