Oh my gosh...I completely feel the same way. My bag has 60+ short stories and another 20 expository essays to grade and I can't bring myself to do it because I know I will end up spending 10-15 minutes on each. I can't stop commenting or giving suggestions for improvement. I tried meeting one-on-one with my students to go over their drafts, but it took 3 days and I still didn't get through each class. By then, the rest of the class was getting restless and tired of editing and/or reading silently while I met with each one. To give valuable feedback, we need fewer students and more time. Since that will never be possible, I find myself giving fewer writing assignments and much shorter ones. And I feel incredibly guilty about it, but I won't last in this job another 12 years if I don't. Thank you for saying how we all feel inside. It does help to know I'm not alone.
