I am excited to join Fierce in Fourth's Blog Hop. Even though this will be my 25th year teaching, I still have butterflies and spend the night before tossing and turning. So, here are my jitters....
1. I am in a new position this year doing something I have never done before. It is a little outside my comfort zone since it involves "Official Paperwork", otherwise known as IEP's. I will not have my own full-time class and I'm not quite sure how I am going to like that.
2. Scheduling!!! I still don't know exactly how my day is going to look or how in the world I am going to fit all of my responsibilities into 6 hours. I know it will all work out, but I hate not knowing.
3. I feel such a tremendous amount of responsibility to my students, their parents and their teachers. I so want my students to succeed, their parents to be informed and satisfied, and their teachers to feel free to ask me for help whenever needed.
I plan to keep reminding myself each day that God has put me in this position "For such a time as this" and I know that He will be guiding my days.
PS - I am having a Linky Party on Encouraging Reluctant Learners and would love any advice I can get.
