1st day jitters...

I just read Ashley @ Fierce in Fourth's "First Day Jitters Blog Hop and here are my 3 first day jitters:

1. Meeting and getting to know 29+ new students and their parents. This always makes me nervous!
2. STAAR testing. I'm still a 5th grade self-contained teacher and I FEEL THE PRESSURE!!!
3. Can I survive without my Baby Boy. We ha been inseparable all summer long!

Happy Teaching!


  1. I am a Texas teacher too so I understand the pressure of the STAAR test. The pressure and stress of more rigorous instruction even trickles down to the little ones.

    I am happy to be your newest follower and love the name of your blog. On my blog I share my belief that before you reach their heads you have to touch their hearts. I would love for you to hop over and visit when you get the chance.
