Re: Nervous about starting the year


Date: Mon Aug 26 2002 - 19:27:02 PDT

I don't get students until after Labor Day, but my first official day back is tomorrow. (I say "official" because I've been doing some work in the art room--not that it needs it--ha.....Ugh it's such a mess....worked 2 hrs this afternoon and barely made a dent....)

One night last week I had major butterflies and then again last night I didn't sleep well, thinking about it.

I'm starting my 4th year and I'll have to say that I'm not nearly as nervous as I was my FIRST year, but every year is different, and since I have to reinvent the wheel every year with my mixed grade/mixed level classes, I always hope that I'll be able to come up with projects that will be exciting, challenging and meaningful to the kids.
