(FYI, I have two years teaching experience in another state....a few years ago) Well, I just started to day-to-day sub in a few good school districts (quit a good job -non-teaching job-after four years) I'm already down on myself. I thought I would go in with confidence but I'm starting off the school year with the thoughts "I'm not good enough" "I won't get anything out of subbing" "Others are better". I don't understand why I'm thinking like this already because I've only subbed a few times. Is this normal? I was excited to sub but now I feel like crap and I don't know why. It's like I'm dreading it and it just started! I'm not even introducing myself to people (only people who come into the classroom...I'm not even making a good first impression- I don't go into the principal's office let them know I'm here). My confidence is non-existent. Any advice or positive thinking would be appreciated. I feel pretty pathetic by posting this but I honestly thought I was going to be positive about the subbing Thanks!!
