Ready or not, I will have to appear that I AM ready!
It is not yet 3 a.m. and I can't sleep. I feel like I won't be ready.
The first few days and weeks of a new school year are filled with rules, expectations, teaching of procedures/routines and I don't feel like I know myself what they will need to be. How will I teach them to my students?
BUT, Miss W is a great assistant and was in the same room last year; she has and will be my crutch.
Miss T, my other assistant, holds a Special Education teaching endorsement in another state.
One of my students will have a "BHA" with him every day. Never heard of them. I think it stands for Behavioral Health Assistant. He has two of them, but only one each day.
Right now, our adult to child ration is 1:1
I (we) will do fine. I will be flying by the seat of my pants. This isn't my first pony ride, I (we) will do fine!
But still, I am tossing and turning, mind racing100 miles per hour.
I will be trying Essential Oils in the class, so we will see how that works. People do walk in my room and often mention how nice my room smells.
I drank warm milk while typing, I am going to crawl back in bed and see if I can catch a few more winks.
