a step and then another...and another

I am excited every day the kids begin arriving in the morning. I get so much energy from them. There were moments halfway through my cert program when I questioned if I was in fact doing the right thing. Do I really have what it takes to educate future citizens? What makes me equipped for such a job?
But this quarter I got back in the classroom and knew that this was it. Every day I love to be here. Don't get me wrong, I am scared to death sometimes about all the things that I don't know or don't feel prepared for but that's life. If I continually baulk at the unknown and use it as excuse to defer my dreams, I will find myself in the same boring place 20, 30, 50 years from now. I want to grow, as a person and as an educator. I want to learn and I want to teach. And because of these desires I know that it will be okay. I just need to close my eyes and step.....

Being a bit scared can be a good thing. It brings you the adrenaline you need every day. It sounds to me like you'll be a great teacher and I for 1 a.m. glad you're with the kids. Good luck and everything you do every day you do it.
