First Day of School

(Written on August 22)

It's 7:45 am on Monday, August 23, 2010. It is my first day as a teacher where I'll actually have students in my classroom. Right now.

I hope that I am not freaking out. I hope that I am not so nervous that I start shaking. I keep thinking back to my school teachers. I don't remember judging them. I just wanted to know what I could expect out of the class for the year and if I thought she would be nice to me. And I think that is all my students will be thinking. They don't care if I am nervous. I need to fake my confidence if it turns out I don't have as much as I want.

But here I am. There is no turning back, not that I want to.

In 7 1/2 hours, I'll have survived the first day of school.
