It's only half past the point of no return
The tip of the iceberg
The sun before the burn
The thunder before the lightning
The breath before the phrase
Have you ever felt this way?
In all the fear for my first "real" year teaching, I feel like I am gonna repeat this lyric a lot:
No matter how "scared" I may be, I don't care. I will overcome. I will shine, I will sparkle, and most importantly, my students will succeed. :)
