Image Hosted by ImageShack.usI know that many people become teachers every year and most of them manage to survive and even thrive.

This does not help me right now because I start teaching a week from today and for some reason all the confidence I used to have has evaporated and I'm in full panic mode. I have forgotten how to teach, they will see that I'm a fraud, and then I'll be out of work.

Or I could be fine.

I KNOW I'll probably be fine. That doesn't do much to calm me down right now. I'm trying to plan out things, but not having even seen the English office, much less the school beyond the front entrance, is not helping.

People say the first year or two are the worst for teaching. I wish no one had really told me this because I'm already feeling under the gun. I'm petrified that I'm going to screw up teaching and give a shoddy education. I keep feeling like I'm going to show up, go into shock, and just not be able to do a thing. Kind of like a deer in headlights.

I wish there was some sort of tranquilizer here. I'm totally out of my depth.

Snap the heck out of it.

This is what you were born for and you've been preparing for it one way or another your entire adult life.

You will be fine.
