Even Teachers Get First Day of School Jitters

You probably remember getting ready for your first day of school as a child, picking out an outfit, getting school supplies, and who can forget the nervous butterflies the night before.

Turns out students aren't alone, some new teachers are revisiting some of those past emotions.

The day began bright and early for first time teacher Kelly Nall.

"I just had to get ready for the day, and just kind of chill out at first before I even walked into the school. It's just kind of a nerve-wracking thing," Davila Middle School Teacher Kelly Nall said. "But then you walk in and you're like they're just kids."

Nall's first day of school jitters were quickly put at ease as she realized some of her students were more nervous than her.

"Some of them you could just tell were like 'I want to go back to Elementary school', and some of them look like they just woke up, and some of them were really excited and you could tell they were jittery but were ready for the day and ready to learn," Nall said.

Nall is ready to teach them. It's a day she's been waiting for.

One by one as each student files into her classroom, she wants to take them on a new adventure into English and Language Arts.

"You get to set the pace as the teacher with everything and it's just really exciting to add some of your own flair," Nall said.

Some of Kelly's flair includes livening things up for her students with props and costumes, and making each day of learning fun and exciting.

"If I can get them to love to learn, that's going to go a lot further than just one thing they read and hear, or one paper they write," Nall said.
