T-minus five months and counting

I can't believe I am almost done with college. Really, I never thought I would make it through. But I did and now that the day is almost here I am not so sure I am ready to enter the "real world". In less than five months I will be responsible for educating young minds (as long as I make it through student teaching). Am I really ready? It will definitely be scary. Last month I went to a pre-service teacher conference in Washington D.C. and one of the speakers said that 80% of teachers quit within the first five years -or some crazy statistic like that. Cross your fingers I make it longer than that!!
