Just over one week before I return to the classroom. Can I do it? Can I stand in front of all of those students and keep my composure? Can I keep my composure while simultaneously teaching? Can I learn all of their names, keep a grade book, grade papers...do all of things a teacher is paid to do? Will I shatter again? Can I do any of this when merely thinking about it fills me with dread and causes my head to pound? Do I even have a choice in the matter? Self doubt, dear reader, is another aspect of depression.
