What if I've forgotten how to do it?
I don't think I'll ever be able to do it so don't worry.
I thought this.... I thought what if i get in front of the class and realise that I have no idea what i'm meant to be doing. This hasn't happened yet in 4 years though......
I'm an NQT and certainly expect to be 'discovered' as some form of teaching fraudster this week! I can't be fully qualified, surely!
The kids go back Monday, and after 14 years I still feel like this when going back for a new year.
I'm going into Year 1 after years teaching Years 3/4 - help
We go back next week and I have year 2, after 15 years of having year 5 or above. I am worried that, having begged my HT for over a year to let me move to infants, I won't actually be able to do it!
I feel the same! I panic that I won't be able to control them, that it'll all go horribly wrong, and after 4 years they'll realise I actually still have no clue what I'm doing!
Great to know I'm not the only one! First time ever in Y4/5/6 after 7 years in YR/1/2 or separate Y1 or Y2 classes......and I'm terrified.
I'm going into Year 6 after a few years and training in Year 4... Feel like an NQT all over again!
Lots of us moving. I'm starting in Y3/4 after 5 years in KS1/Foundation! Excited but also quite scared. They'll be quicker at doing things won't they (hopefully!) and what if I haven't got enough for them to do?!! What if they ask me a MATHS question!!
Just say, "The best way to remember the answer is to find it out for yourself"!
So glad to read this - gone from primary to 16-18 and feeling the same: 'do i know what I'm doing????
we'll all be fine
I too feel a little sick and wonder if I'll still be able to teach!! I'm back in Year 4, which I enjoy though. Sillow, I went into Year 6 last year for the first time (3rd year of teaching) and was terrified - quite a few tears at the beginning of the year when I realised how far they still had to go before the end of the year - but I absolutely loved it!! Fantastic kids and year group - wish I was there again this year but we do a rolling programme where we take kids from Year 5 to 6 so that we have a head start on things, makes it easier. Very, very busy year but you will love it, I'm sure.x
Thank you for the confidence boost, Rach!
I am starting a temporary post, in a prefab building, teachinng Year 6 in a closing school, which also happens to still be an absolute building site. Bricking it!
