I have a love/hate relationship with the first day of school. I used to get so excited as a child and now, as a teacher, I get the opportunity to feel that excited every September. I hope that I never lose that! I also hate the first day of school. Nerves overtake me every year. Many doubts run through my mind. My most prevalent concern is....."Will I oversleep?" No worries, of course, because I will be up at 4am. "How many times will I have to teach the signal for having to use the bathroom?" "Did I plan enough?" It always works out and it will again this year.
I better go and get to bed.....4am will come early!
