New Job Nerves The Creative Teacher Project

It’s the tail end of the Easter break, and I have just over a week before I start to teach (for REAL) at my new school.

To be completely honest, the last month or so has been a total roller coaster of emotions, ranging from dancing-down-the-street-with-a-huge-smile happy, to 3am-wake-up-I-don’t-think-I-can-do-this. Right now I feel like I’ve settled into a relatively calm excited-but-a-little-nervous. I can work with that.

I’ve found myself in a reflective mood, and I’ve got to thinking about my time in secondary school. Some of my new students will be gearing up for their exams not long after I start, and I can so clearly remember the emotions of that time. They’re pretty much exactly how I’m feeling now. Change is scary.

New challenges are on the horizon, and if I take a deep breath, relax, and use the time I have to get so organised that I barely recognise myself, then I’ll be fine.On the off chance that any of you out there are about to take exams, I gently recommend you do the same.

Remember – one day, when you’re older and greyer, you’ll look back at this time and think “Hey I’ve done this before, I can do it again”. So let’s do it, bigger and better than ever.

Wish me luck!
