    Reminiscing on My First Day of Teaching

    My first day of teaching still haunts me to this day.  Not because it was a bad experience, although there were many things I would do differently if I could, but because it was the fact that I was teaching. Even though I majored in English as an undergraduate and master’s student, it was difficult for me to imagine myself in front of the classroom as a teacher.  I was notorious for doubting myself. Heck, still today, even when it’s been five years since I started teaching.
