It's almost here. School is about to begin again. I'm physically ready, but not mentally ready. I don't want to begin the year feeling like I am just a page ahead of the kids. Planning is the hardest part for me, and beginning with a new curriculum makes it even more challenging. I'm so glad my friend is doing this with me. It helps take some of the pressure off. Thank goodness. You'd think that after all these years of being a teacher, I'd be more sure of myself. I guess it's different when you're personally involved with the kids, and you are with them 24/7.
Deep breath. I love teaching. It's what I was meant to do. I just wish I was more gifted in the areas that make it an easier thing to do.
