I keep going back and forth with my emotions this week. We had our Open House on Thursday night. I was so sick-to-my-stomach nervous! And I was frantically getting ready up until the last minute. Then I met most of my 27 new first graders! They were all so adorable and so little! I was ecstatic and eager to start teaching them right then and there! Then I went in to my room today and was completely overwhelmed. I am nowhere near ready! I only spent about 5 hours there, and then the laminator and copy machine broke. Teacher's worst nightmare! So I was forced to leave and go lay by the pool. Unfortunate, right? :) I hope by Monday I am back to feeling excited.
(I'm sure I will. This is completely normal teacher preweek behavior..... right???)
