Tomorrow is the day it all begins. It is surreal. After so many years of schooling, I am no longer a student but a teacher. To think that those years of schooling came to a purpose is incredible. What a blessing! God has a purpose for me, and right now it is being a Grade 2 teacher and an Art teacher. Wow. It is hard to find the right words for what I am feeling right now - Apprehension, fear, excitement, joy ...those are just a few.
I think about what the worst is that could happen. I have even looked up horror stories of the first days of teaching online. The first day can't really be that bad can it? I am nervous to meet my students, nervous that they won't like me, nervous that I won't be the right teacher. Nervous for this new beginning. Did I make the right decision in taking this profession? Did I make the right decision in taking this specific job? Can I really do this?
Above all I must remember the purpose behind this all. Why do I teach? Why am I starting this crazy adventure? Why am I taking on this huge challenge? To glorify God. I chose to live for Him and I firmly believe this is where He wants me right now. What a comfort this is. What a reassurance.
My trust is in Him.
