Altogether, Anne went to bed that night in a rather pessimistic mood. She slept poorly and was so pale and tragic at breakfast next morning that Marilla was alarmed and insisted on making her take a cup of scorching ginger tea. Anne sipped it patiently, although she could not imagine what good ginger tea would do. Had it been some magic brew potent to confer age and experience Anne would have swallowed a quart of it without flinching.
“Marilla what if I fail!”
“You’ll hardly fail completely in one day and there's plenty more days coming,” said Marilla “The trouble with you, Anne, is that you’ll expect to teach those children everything and reform all their faults right off, and if you can t you’ll think you’ve failed.”
--Anne of Avonlea (1909)
I know that my blogging has been limited lately but I've been preparing for student teaching. While I won't be blogging about my experiences in the classroom, I do hope to continue blogging in general. Hopefully I'll get back on a schedule and the posts will be more frequent.
The good news is that I have a lot of new things to share. I have been doing a lot of research over the past few months and will finally get around to posting a lot of it. The bad news is that I am as nervous to start teaching as Anne was. I'm sure everything will be fine once I am settled in. As for right now, I'm still very nervous. A lot has been happening very quickly.
Wish me luck!
