    ...and I'm SOOOOOOO bored. And nervous. :( I'm all ready to go so I'm just sitting here.

    Pointless post, but I'm just so nervous!!! I seriously feel sick to my stomach and I'm shaking.

    Does anyone else get this nervous?!

    Hugs! I felt a lot better before our parent meetings this year, when the veteran teacher next door to me said something about being nervous. If she's still nervous after 20-some years of doing this, I figured it was okay for me to be nervous too. Give me a whole gym full of kids over a couple parents anyday! ;)

    Oh! I bet you will do fine! Good luck! Thinking of you!

    Can you get a cup of tea and just sit and reflect? That is what I do when I have that hour to kill before something big like this and I am all nervous and crazy! Good luck! Hugs! You will be great!

    I hope it goes well. Tell us what you did?

    I get super nervous too. I think I secretly I feel I will get found out. That I love my job but sometimes I just make things up at a minutes notice. That I am scared too! That I want everyone to like me, even though I know it isn't possible.

    So far I continue to keep my cover!

    Well, it's over and things went well!

    It's always ok in the end...It's just the waiting part that I hate!

    I always find that the more nervous I am... the better I do! Sounds weird but so true.... during Kindergarten openhouse when I met one of the parents.. my heart was literally beating out of my chest. But then I had a moment of calm reassurance that let me know I got this and I'm going to be great at what I do...

    Ours is this week too. What does me in is I have staff parents who always attend-for some reason they make me much more nervous than the parents. One is an admin so I guess I'm afraid I'll say the wrong thing.

    Glad things went well-I'm with you, nothing worse than waiting.

    We had ours last night. Only about a 3rd of my parents came in. I was bored so I invited former parents in to see my new SmartBoard and new room set up.

    I understand completely. Even though I was completely prepared, I still was anxious to get it started. For me, I don't think nervous is the right word, but anxious.

    Ours was last week, and it's always nice at the end of the night when it's all over! And I get a good feeling from finally meeting some of the parents!
