Remember when you would have those dreams before your first day of school? I think just about everybody has had the dream of arriving at school nekkid at one point in their education.
Well my dreams are still continuing! You would think since I'm the teacher and all that I would be above this, but it never fails that I have one dream, or rather nightmare, before the first day of school. This year was no different. I had a dream that I arrived to school for the student's first day and couldn't find my classroom. I had been in there for a few days before, getting everything set up, but on the first day it was gone. Poof. So I walked around the school looking in everybody's classroom for my own. I was feeling quite ticked that all my hard work had went missing. I was determined to not have to go to the Principal's office and tell them that I lost my room. I'd like to say that I eventually found it, but nope. I woke up sweating before then!
While it was quite an uncomfortable dream it was nothing compared to last years. Last year I dreamed that I was put in a closet size room with a handful of the worst kids ever without any computers, desks, chairs, whiteboard, textbooks, ANYTHING. I didn't even have a schedule so I didn't know when to go to lunch or, even worse, when school was over. Pshew, when I woke up from that one I had to wake Dave up too!!
Thankfully though my dreams are only that...DREAMS. For the past five years, I'm happy to say, the first day of school has came and gone without too much drama. However, the dreams are still sticking around. I wonder what it will be next year??
What about you? Do you remember any dreams you ever had before school began again? For all my teacher readers, do you have any dreams before the first day of school? Or am I the only weird one out there??
