Hello all! I am so excited about the school year... Yea, I know that means summer is over, but I have learned so much this summer and have grown, so I am excited to to get into my classroom and rock this year. Are you?
Anyway, I am linking up with Ashley over at Fierce in Fourth for First Day Jitters Blog Hop! I know that I am just learning how to be a teacher ( a great one), and even though this is my second year, I am jittery again.
1. I am teaching with a new co teacher. I loved my last co teacher and she made me feel so awesome. We worked well together and we learned from each other. Well, my co teacher moved to another grade. I am not so worried about the person, but just us being teacher together. I am all for collaboration, but I don't want to feel that I have to do what you do in your classroom. And that is my jittery fear number 1.
2. Implementing 7 Habits. My school system is implementing 7 Habits as a system wide. I am excited about implementing the habits as I think they are great for students to learn and grow with, but I am a little nervous about ensuring that I am using them throughout the year and making sure my students know that I am expecting them to as well.
3. Teaching with the new ideas, curriculum, and all the things in between. Let's face it, teaching is jittery in itself. And at times, there are so many ideas that we can't get to, add in new curriculum and the itty bitty things that become large, it's a wonder how we can do it all. I am a litter jittery about the stress of the first few weeks and the ittly bitty things that follow.
