Well this is my first year teaching and I am truly excited! I am a transitioning into the field after a few years at a large financial company and earning my MBA. I just really wanted to focus on something new and rewarding - and this is it!!! But today I received the teachers manual's and I am suddenly overwhelmed. Apparently their aren't math books for students - so I have to use these concepts to teach with materials that I don't have and the manual really is horrible - I'm totally lost. Then the Social Studies manual gives a million and 1 ways to teach - but how can I possibly get all of this information in! And we don't have reading manuals yet - so who knows about that! So tell me- how do I not feel so overwhelmed!!!
