I've been feeling awfully anxious lately about heading back to the classroom. Millions of questions have been swirling around my brain about procedures, lesson ideas, room set-up...you name it, I've thought about it. But today, much of that anxiety was quelled thanks to my dear friend, Dawn. After ordering some iced chai teas, we headed over to Wash Park for a 4 mile walk around it's ridiculously picturesque perimeter. We walked, talked, and brainstormed like crazy.
And it was just what I needed.
I am so grateful that Dawn understands my need to process verbally and that she acknowledged my feelings instead of just saying "you'll be fine, don't worry". Being a teacher is both exhilarating and scary at the same time. I am thankful that Dawn gets that and gets me. :)
