This time of the year I always struggle with self-doubt about my abilities as a teacher. As I have mentioned before, teaching was never my intention, and it was frankly something that fell into my lap at a time when I was feeling completely fed up with the direction my life was going. I took the job with no idea what I was in for, and my first year was truly the definition of a "baptism by fire" or being "thrown to the wolves" ( you can chose). What I lacked in experience, I think I made up for in enthusiasm and natural ability,but that entire year I was terrified that any day someone was going to escort me out of the room and the jig would be up.

Being a teacher is such a daunting responsibility! What if I don't teach them the right way to write? What if we don't make it to The Scarlet Letter or Tom Sawyer or Shakespeare? What if they never understand the difference between a verbal and a verb? Have I failed them for life? Is their future ruined? Sorry to be harping so much lately with school re-starting but it's weighing heavily on my mind. So, tell me, how do you deal with self-doubt?
