I don't think this is normal, but I figured I'd ask you all. Everytime I sub high school I have an "on edge" feeling. It's like, I can't relax. I know it doesn't show because everyone tells me I look calm and relaxed, but really I feel like any minute something is going to happen that will cause me to have to eal with a misbehavior...and I hate doing that at the high school level. So far things have gone fine at the hs. I was there on Friday and today (Tues). When I did have to tell a senior boy in study hall to be quiet, I was very stern when telling him, and he said, "OK" and he did listen. I am thinking that the more I am with the same hs students the more comfortable I will "feel". Most of them I am getting to know and feel comfortable with. It's just the feeling of " waiting for the moment". I'm sure this feeling is due to the fact that I did have some serious confrontations with some seniors last year..thank God they're gone. OK, am I crazy. Please let me know if any of you know the "on edge" feeling I'm talking about and what can do (besides meds) to loosen up.
