School starts the 18th for me, and I'm very nervous- 1st year teacher! I have not had the opportunity yet to see my classroom, my students IEPs or schedule. I know I have about 6-7 students, from 1st-3rd grade, but currently that is all I have! Is two weeks a good amount of time for preparation for your first classroom? I'm thinking only the worst currently, and of course I want to be as prepared as possible. I have so many things running through my head, "How do I exactly start the first few days?" " How will I effectively work with three different grade levels?" "Will I have support?" and most importantly.. Will they expect me to know EVERYTHING right off the bat, I mean student teaching and my coursework had prepared me- BUT many situations I have not encountered. I'm nervous about heading IEPs-I've only been apart of one- the others were for incoming students. Any advice? Am I making this much worse? eh..
