This is surreal


Today is very surreal and emotional for me. It's the first day of the new school year and my first day with my students as a teacher. I honestly cannot believe this morning I will be walking into my very own classroom that I've worked so hard in and have 21 students ready for the school year. I have dreamed of being a teacher for so long that it has always been something that would just happen "one day". Well today is the day and I just can't believe it. To say I'm nervous is an understatement. I know my students have high expectations for their teacher and I hope I can live up to it. My nerves are on edge and I'm a tad bit emotional however I am also VERY EXCITED!! 

I have so many fun things planned for this week that correspond with some classic back to school books. 

Yesterday I had a strong urge to attend church and pray for the upcoming school year. This is the start of a HUGE new chapter and I know the Lord will be with me every step of the way! 

So, cheers to the start of a new chapter. 
Let's hope it goes well!
