First Day Jitters Blog Hop

Hello All!

I'm Hopping back into the new school year by linking up with some awesome Blog Hops!  This one's from Fierce in Fourth. What are MY first day jitters...

1.  I'm moving to a new school this year and that comes with all kinds of NEW!  New people, New routines, New kids, New commute, New EVERYTHING!  So I'm a bit nervous.

2.  Will I fit in?! I'm nervous about figuring out the ins and outs of a new team.  Will they like me and my style?  Or think I'm a totally obnoxious over-achiever?

3.  BUMP!  Finally, I'm worried that I'll get bumped.  Since I'm the newest at the campus, I'll can be bumped if the Kindergarten numbers are low.  That will send me out into the school district universe of ANYTHING THEY WANT TO DO WITH ME!  Soothing thoughts... Soothing thoughts...

Go check out what a lot of other teachers are jittery about!


  1. I was so worried last year about fitting in (it was my first year teaching). I finally realized that the ones who can't accept me are not my friends... they are my coworkers. :)

  2. That is such a good point, Ashley!

  3. Thanks for the follow! Now I'm following you, too! I know what you mean about being at a new school! I've taught for 14 years and have been in 6 different buildings! It can be nerve wracking! But, just be yourself, take care of your kiddos, and the rest will fall into place! Good luck!

  4. Wow! 6 schools! You probably have it down to a science. Thanks for the great advice!

  5. Oh my gosh....your post took me back to my firt 12 years of teaching. Every spring we were told that there were going to be "BIG CUTS" for the following year. I would develop an ulcer worrying all through the rest of the current year and into the summer. And every year, we ended up adding teachers. Although I still find plenty to worry about, getting bumped is no longer one of them. Here's hoping enough little ones show up to keep you right where you are. I found your blog through the "Jitters" blog hop and am now a follower. I'd love for you to visit back and check out my blog (and enter my giveaway if you would like.)
