New Teacher - No Curriculum

Thanks for your input, teachnkids!

I'll be teaching in Missouri using the Missouri Learning Standards, which are fairly similar to the Common Core Standards. My district is pretty small and doesn't supply its teachers with any kind of curriculum map/pacing guide, so that's making me a little anxious. Throughout college, I heard a few teachers in person and from blog posts say that they spend more time trying to find resources than actually creating the lessons. My issue isn't creating engaging lessons - when I emailed the principal and superintendent some of my unit and lesson plans before my interview, the superintendent later told me that they were the best ones he'd read in his 37 years in education - my issue is trying not to burn out before I've even started my first year of teaching.
