They say that if new teachers can make it through October that they are well on their way to feeling better and more confident about their teaching skills! We did it! I already feel better! Of course that may have something to do with my four day weekend I just enjoyed (two days off for the weekend, one personal day - my first and election day!) Before we know it it'll be Thanksgiving vacation then Christmas Vacation and wa la- halfway through our first year! I'm pysched!!!
