Anyone else nervous before the kids take the state test? Not sure what else I can do to get them ready. I sure hope I can sleep over the next few days!

I try very hard to not let it happen. Seriously. I push thoughts of it away, and refuse to let my mind go there. I did fairly well this year until about three days before, when it got overwhelming because they were giving me dumb answers to a review game we were playing, but it was a Friday, so I was able to go back to mindless zombie state by Monday.

Stress seriously affects my body, and I am getting too old to have health issues. When I was in college, my hair would turn gray before a test and my period would decide to go wacko if I was really nervous. So now that I'm in my fifties, I can just see a heart attack happening. I will not let the stress enter my life if I can help it.

my testing is over and i am sick to my stomache everyday. I am a first year teacher and I cannot sleep at wondering if they passed it or not. I am going to continue to pray.

not alone

I am so glad I am not alone in this. I got transferred this year, never gave a state test and have been out three weeks for emergency surgery. I like the idea of praying and of letting the stress go. Just do the best I can, work hard and that is all I can do.
Thanks for the support.
