Geez, it's only the 3rd of August and I'm already having dreams about school, and it doesn't start until the day after Labour Day! Scenarios about behaviour management and botched lessons are just running through my head as I sleep! I'm perfectly confident about teaching the curriculum, but my big fears are idle time which can happen no matter how prepared you think you are and behaviour management, which is clear in my mind when I'm at home, but when I get into class and am faced with a situation, the confidence goes out the window. These are things I want to improve on this year and the fear of the unknown (because you can't predict or control everything that happens) drives me crazy. Anyone else starting to have the beginning of the year jitters?
