The AP Monster
Do you ever let something consume you and become an irrational fear? I have. I do. I am. I am scared to death to teach AP Language & Composition this fall. I have considered everything up to even becoming a mail-order bride to get out of teaching this class.
I have considered quitting my job, moving to another state, applying for a new job in a different school district, even marrying someone in a foreign country (jk) just to get out of teaching this course! I don't want new challenges, I don't want to grow, at least not this way.
Rationally, I know I can teach this course, but I am scared to death and thus rationality has flown out the window. I'm letting this become a monster in my mind.
