flying solo

today i sub for my teacher.

which means it is me. alone. in a room with 20 kids.

i have everything planned. all the copies have been made. i am so prepared for the teaching part that it’s a bit insane. but it’s the unplanned part that worries me. a child breakdown? or a tantrum? or technology letting me down?

but if a kid has a freak-out, i’ll just tell the other kids to have a seat and read quietly.

and if technology fails, i’ll wing it. i can do that.

but. i am still nervous. just a little. so i’m listening to my current song of the week, and drinking my coffee, and eating my breakfast, and getting into the I CAN DO THIS mindset.
