I have spent most of the summer wishing away the summer holiday - despite the fact that I knew I would regret it from mid September! This was down to a combination of factors including a big and unexpected op and forced imprisonment to recover. I have nursed a growing addiction to this forum and made resources galore. I've been desperate for this day to come after changng career and being a peniless student for 3 yrs. Today however, it has hit me like a tonne of bricks though that in a week I will be in school, a 'real' teacher with my own class. It has given me a slightly sicky feeling! Does anyone else seem to have developed a nervousness about the next stage of their teaching career begining? I have to say, I'm not 22 (sadly!) or green in any way, so hadn't expected to feel nervous - I've had a busy career with many challenges and just run headlong into them. I am definately looking forward to starting BUT can't shake the waves of nervousness! Please tell me I'm not alone!!
