I've been there! I was 48 when I got my first classroom teacher position! I didn't have a mentor but the other grade level teacher was very helpful. I've got to say that for everyone...no matter what their age, the first year is the hardest!! Once you've got that year under your belt, you'll feel much more confident. So DON'T think it's your age!!!

Also, think about the kids you teach and how they struggle. This must be how they feel many times!
