Well, tomorrow is the first day of class for English 405 and it never fails--even after 22 years of teaching, I still get the jitters and worry over just about everything. I suppose I will always feel this way until I stop teaching. Of course, I don't know if I will ever stop teaching. Whether we are in a formal setting of the classroom, we are still teachers. It is so difficult to separate who I am as a human being from who I am as a teacher.
