Hey all! I am just posting to ask if it is normal to get the jitters before a new school year? I just finished student teaching...something I enjoyed and excelled at. However, I have not recieved the textbooks or anything for the new year (My new teacher orientation is Aug. 18th). I feel like I will be "flying by the seat of my pants" this year? I've heard your first year is extremely tough? Any advice? How far out do you usually plan lesson plans?
