Survival

I survived the first day of school.  I know that sounds extreme, but that is how it feels.  It was a mixture of successes and challenges.  I felt successful in using all of the tools in my belt but I also felt the magnitude of the undertaking.  I know that many people have a great deal of respect for teachers, but I really do not think that most people understand what it takes to teach.  I didn’t until last year, and even then, I don’t think that I’ll fully understand until I’m a few more months in!  Despite the challenges, I’m excited to go back tomorrow and hopeful that if I just work hard at it one day at a time, the magnitude will feel a little less heavy over time.
