I've spent a couple of days in my new school, sorting my classroom and meeting colleagues and we've had some Staff Training Days which have all gone really well and I'm still sure I made the right decision. BUT... now it's nearly time to actually start teaching, I suddenly find myself really anxious so I need some kind words from my virtual colleagues and friends please! I think it's the prospect of being observed very early in the term that's scaring me. I think it just brings back the horror of my last school where I went from Outstanding to RI in the space of just a couple of weeks and was forced to leave at Easter to preserve my mental health. When I'm thinking rationally, I know that I am not a rubbish teacher and I know that my new school observed me teach and interviewed me and were very happy with what they saw.....but then, I thought that last time as well. How can I feel more relaxed and prepared? Any tricks that you know to lessen anxiety?
