As teachers, as coworkers, and even as humans, we want people to know that we’ve got it together, that we don’t need any help. “No, thank you, I’m fine. “ One thing we don’t talk about enough is anxiety, especially in highly-sensitive introverts.
Today, Monica Wright & Amber Jordan are here to share their experiences with anxiety and the classroom.
