    It was hard at times, but I have survived my first year of teaching!!!!! It's time for a few days of hibernation followed by waking up without a morning alarm.

    It feels so good, doesn't it? I think everyone dreads their first year teaching and all those horror stories, but once it's over you feel like you conquered the world!

    I'm surprised I didn't cry when the kids left. After my dismissal duty was over I went back to my room and I had the biggest smile on my face and a sigh of relief. Teaching isn't for wimps!

    Congrats...I survived my first year too.. I was really stressed out the first semester. I was very closed to not being renewed. But my principal, resource teacher and others helped me out which helped me excelled the second semester. Now, I know what I am going to do different and start the next year right.

    Congrats! I hope that I will be able to share your same feelings this time next year. I will begin my first year teaching this coming Fall... so exciting, but definitely a little scary at the same time!

    It's true what others teachers say; the first year is tough! I'm glad I made it and can truly say I'd do it all over again.

    My last day of my first year is tomorrow! After everyone goes on and on about the first year being so hard, I was pleasantly surprised! Honestly, I think being a ST was MUCH harder. This year was a breeze in comparison! I can't wait to go back next year and "know stuff" right away, haha and not worry about silly things like getting the school routine down or getting to know the other teachers. Mostly, I am just ESTATIC that I will not have to job search this summer! We're packing up and moving schools, and there is a feeling of being totally overwhelmed going around the staff. I just feel so good that I have a job for sure, that I could really care less about end of the year stress.

    Definitely, I agree! I can enjoy the summer and not have to send out a thousand resumes to schools.
