The First Day of School
No matter that it’s my 18th first day of school as a teacher, I still had trouble sleeping last night (despite 2 Tylenol PMs) and I have butterflies this morning.
No matter that I’ll be in the same classroom, SAME STUDENTS, I’m still nervous.
Expectations are high. I know these kids. There won’t be any “getting to know you” time. We can start the first day of school. We know our routines. I know what they know. Because of this, we’re expected to do well this year on the state test.
That’s a big pressure.
But I have faith in my kids. I have relationships with their parents.
So today is just going to be like any other day. I’m going to hug my babies, welcome them back and get to work.
Then come home and take a nap!
