It's not only first year teachers! I've been teaching more than 20 and still have the jitters for days before that first day!

I used to have a common dream, or maybe it was nightmare. Once a year, about a week before school starts, I would dream that the students ignored every command and request I gave. It was like they couldn't hear a word I said. This would continue until I woke up in a cold sweat.

Most teachers I have talked with have said similar things! It's those first day jitters!
