It's that time of year again! Back to school time. Teachers go back next week and the kiddos arrive on the 4th.
My body knows it's back to school time because I can't sleep. AT ALL. For the few weeks leading up to school I have the hardest time sleeping. I'm up at crazy hours of the night jotting down notes for things I want to try or do in my classroom and I can't seem to turn my brain off. This usually stops shortly after school starts. Which is good because I REALLY need my beauty rest.
I decided to link up with a Turn to Learn for the Back to School Jitters linky party
As the picture says I've taught the same kids for three years. This was great because I really got to know them as people and learners. However I am so excited about getting a new class and all the change that it will bring.
I always get so nervous before the first day of school. The not sleeping, can't keep down a breakfast, sweaty hands kind of nervous. I will say though besides the sweaty hands no one would know I was nervous, I'm pretty good at keeping my cool ;-)
The terrible thing is that every single year I have had a great first day. The kiddos are always on their best behavior and everything goes as smoothly as it can. So why do I feel this way year after year! Seriously, it is super annoying
Any veterans out there want to tell me when this feeling goes away?
I've enjoyed this linky party because it is good to know that others out there get nervous too and that I'm not alone.
In other news! Check my blog tomorrow because I have three days of fantastic giveaways lined up for you! It's the last three days of my summer vacation so I'm going to try and live it up as much as I can, and you guys can have the chance to get some goodies!
So don't forget to come back tomorrow!
