Second Guessing My Career Choice

Cassie06 - January 27

I am getting so nervous! I am an education major, getting my BS degree in interdisciplinary studies with a concentration in Elementary Ed Pre-K to 6th. I will also be graduating with a teaching licence. I absolutely love kids and love teaching, but I am getting nervous! I have almost all education classes this semester, and we are writing lessons plans, doing bulletin boards, teaching classes, doing activities, going out and doing field experience and working in actual classrooms, etc. And I just realized this time next year I will be student teaching! I am so scared!! I dont mind talking in front of the kids, but I feel so nervous I could pass out when I am being watched by the classroom teacher or my mentor teacher. I really want to teach kindergarten, so all my lessons and activities are geared toward that age, and I feel so condescending trying to teach my peers and profs as if they were 5!! I know this is what I really want to do, but I seem to have permanent butterflies in my stomach lately!! Is there anything I can do for this? I just want to relax and feel confident!! I just needed to get this out! Thanks!

Oh Ca__sie! I hope this gets better for you! I admire anyone who can stand in front of people and give speeches! I simply am not one of those people (and I love to talk...go figure). Just think, you made it this far! You can do it! Good luck!

I am sure you are not the only one who gets b___terflies in their stomach which won't fly out and go south. I would just go with the flo. Nothing else you can do? Yay for making it si far.
