New Year, New Start

In approximately 3 days I will be preparing for my first day of teaching as a REAL teacher. I am terrified, excited, overjoyed, and proud to start this first year. I know it's gonna be a doozy, but hopefully there will be some lovely moments of grace and clarity thrown in.

I think one of my main fears about the upcoming school year is that I won't be a 'good enough' teacher. I know I have to get used to the feeling of being 'good enough' over being perfect, but I fear that if I don't do things perfectly, I will lose my job, my students will suffer, my reputation will be destroyed, etc. Wow, deep thoughts.
