The Night Before

Posted by Seeking Solace |

When I was little, I always had trouble falling asleep the night before the first day of school. I would lie awake, thinking about what would happen the next day. I guess you could call it a cross between excitement and fear. A new year. Different teachers. New expectations.

Tomorrow is my first day back to the classroom after my job hiatus. It's been eight months since I have stood in front of a group of college students and tried to look like I knew what I was doing.

Different college. Different students. New expectations.

Am I excited?




Will I sleep tonight?

Probably not.
