Hi I'm an NQT and will have a year 3 class from Monday. I have mixed emotions, very excited to petrified and feeling sick! I have been in school a fair few days over summer, classroom is prepared, MTPS in place and first weeks lit and num plans done and first 2 weeks topic plan done. So i think I am as organised as I can be?? Or can I be more organised? The school I'm working at is lovely and the staff seems so helpful and supportive and have all said they will be there for me as support. But I have one MAJOR worry, Im just out of Uni, (3 year BA) and just turned 21 (in July) and look about 17!!! I already know (through talking to TA) that parents are already saying things like "that new teacher looks very young" and also had a parent of child in my class come up to me during summer term and state, " I have to apologise but I didn't believe my daughter when she said that you were her new class teacher as your very young.!" Now I know this is to be expected but what can I do to settle these worries I am having? Does anyone else feel like this?? and lastly I just wana say "GOOD LUCK EVERYONE" for what I know is going to be a very tough yet rewarding year. fingers crossed!!! thank you in advance for any advice!
