The first week of school is always stressful. The newness of everything, setting routines, what to expect, getting to know your kids, learning their strengths and weaknesses, and getting yourself in a routine.
I, currently, am still not in a routine. I feel like I am just barely staying afloat about the water. I feel like I am accomplishing things in my classroom, then I talk to my other team teachers and they are way ahead of me and coming up with all these good ideas.
When am I supposed to have time to come up with good ideas ? Our free time is the end of the day and , teachers, you know that at the end of the day you want to do nothing !
And here comes Friday, coming up on a full week of school, the first one yet, and most of us will be freaking out about what In the world am I supposed to teach next week ?
So many things so little time….
Are you feeling this way after your first week of school ?
