It is Completely Normal

Leave a comment

Freeing the Angel

It is completely normal to feel sick with fear before facing your first class.

It is completely normal to feel like you are bluffing at being a teacher, and that eventually someone will find you out.

It is completely normal to feel weirdly over excited about having your ‘own’ class and your ‘own’ classroom.

It is completely normal to pitch some lessons at completely the wrong level and only realise when you are actually teaching them.

It is completely normal to be so tired that you can barely drag yourself into school, let alone teach a great lesson.

It is completely normal, therefore, to sometimes give yourself a ‘lesson off’.

It is completely normal to shout at your class when they have really wound you up (even though you know you’re not meant to do it).

It is completely normal not to be able to keep up with your marking.
