A North Carolina middle school teacher finally decided she’d had enough, and there’s a good reason why.
Erica Bean, a sixth grade science, language arts and social science teacher found that the stress of her job, and taking care of her family was taking too much of a toll on her during the pandemic. You really can’t blame her. The stress wasn’t only getting to her, but her family suffered as well.
After 20 years of teaching, the mother of two decided to resign. What put her over the edge? When her own daughter told her “You help those kids more than you help us.” It was then that she realized that her daughter was right.
