Fumbling fingers, that refuse to do
The job that they’re paid to do.
There are only few actions
That should come so easy
And yet after a week
They’re alien to me.
I am back to school after a lovely half term break, and now I feel like I have forgotten how to teach. I think that a lot of the problem is down to being a new teacher and taking even a short break can knock my confidence. It almost feels like I’m starting from scratch again.
This happens in any job, as I remember working at the petrol station and I felt like I had forgotten which buttons to press on the till after coming back from a two week holiday. Of course I hadn’t really forgotten how to operate the till….but that fear remains.
I think this week is going to be a bit bumpy as I find my feet again, but I need to remind myself that I trained hard for a year to do this job, and that means that I really do know how to do this. I may not have the muscle memory yet, but I’m sure I can fumble my way through this.

Getting back into it is always a bit tough, Rachel. Take some deep breaths and it’ll come back to you, quicker than you think!
You do know how to do this. It’ll come back, and you’ll move forward.
It will come back to you. Be confident: you know how to do this.
Four days later and it’s definitely come back!!!
