Here is a little background: I graduated school in Dec of 2005. For the 2006-2007 school year I worked as a special education intructional assistant. I have been working as a CNA and a Child Care Teacher since then (and am still working right now. I will have a week and a half off before I start). For this coming year I have finally found a job-I have signed the contract, sent in all of my paper work and know that I start August 4th with the students returning August 13th. I have no clue what I will be teaching. With the exception that it will be a special education position. When I interview there was a 5th grade (I am not certified for) and a 3/4th grade position (only certified to 3rd grade). In my contract it said I would not know until my first day when they have recived all my recomendations ect. I would like to get a prepared as possiable as I already feel completely stressed out and am worried that I of all things have forgotten how to teach, that I am going to be horriable at this. Right now I am reading the First Year Teachers Survival Guide by Julie G Thompson. And Then have Teaching with Love and Logic to read after (mainly because I have wanted to read that for a while) Any advise would be great. Thanks in advance for your help in keeping me sane.
