Three high school teachers speak anonymously about their beginning years of teaching and the difficulty they face in the profession. They reflect on what it was like when they were first starting out: the chaos of the classroom, the unexpected workload demands and the 'reality shock' of teaching. Along with vivid descriptions and amusing anecdotes, comes more profound reflections on the challenges of teaching, and whether or not they will be able to remain in their roles.
