    *big gulp*

    Tomorrow is my first day as a first grade teacher. I'm freaking out!!! My mind is racing in so many different directions right now trying to remember everything I need to do. HELP!!!! I know that I need to go to bed early but I feel like there is still so much more for me to do before tomorrow!!! I think I am just going to breathe, for now!

    Just relax... Everything will be fine tomorrow. I know that when the first day of school is coming up and I always plan on going to bed early it never works because of everything I am thinking that I have to do. You would think it would get easier after teaching 8 years, but my mind constantly races through everything I need to do.

    So just have a great day tomorrow. Everything will turn our great. Tell us about your first day tomorrow. Good luck.:)

    I too start tomorrow... actually the kids don't come until Tuesday morning - but I have my first 'teacher day' and then after that my open house... so it does begin tomorrow... I've had butterflies for most of the day today. :)

    halpey1,

    I too was anxious and did not sleep the night before my first day. Last Monday was my first day and I had a wonderful day.
    In fact I don't think I really slept at all last week. I finally rested all day yesterday.

    Good luck and save some energy for tomorrow!!

    Have a great 1st day tomorrow. I taught 1st grade last year and my kiddos still talked about the 1st day up until the last. They talked about all the butterflies in their tummies. So...just enjoy getting to know them these 1st couple of weeks. This year will fly by and before you know it...it will be time to send them on to another grade.

    Let us know how it goes!!

    It's my first day tomorrow too! Almost half of my students are returning (I teach 1-2 Multi-age), and then I met quite a few of my new 1st-graders today when the class lists were posted. I think I'm ready... except I don't know what I'll wear!
    Happy first-day wishes to everybody else too!

    Knock 'em dead today!!!!

    And remember: as long as everyone gets some lunch and gets on the right bus at the end of the day, you've done a fabulous job!! Everything else is fix-able!!

    Well I had my open house today - it went VERY well - there were a few parents who wanted mini-conferences - but I held them off - the kids were SO glad to see me again after the summer (I met them at step up day in June) - which really made feel good - I'm beat though and we start tomorrow!

    Just remember, it's their first day too. They are just as nervous as you are. This will be my sixth year of teaching and believe me, I still get just as nervous now as I did the first time I set foot into my own classroom. I don't know any teacher who doesn't whether they have never taught before or have been teaching for 30 years. It's natural and you'll do just fine. Good luck!
