Teaching Nightmares

Every-single-year! I have teaching nightmares before school begins. I'm moving to a new school, a new district so I'm starting early this year! This time I'm talking with my new co-workers asking how their summer went and someone turns to me a says, "Don't you know the kids are coming any minute?". Panic! I run to my "classroom" which is really an outdoor stage???? I have nothing set up. My 3rd graders start showing up but they are really sassy teenagers with an attitude! I try to get things started and then decide to open with an ice breaker that goes over terribly! I try to get the kids to line up so I can find the principal and get help with my strange classroom setting and ask why I have teenagers and then it starts pouring down raining! Ugh!
P.S. if this post is in the wrong category please move, thanks.

Wow!! That's such a detailed nightmare! I have similar ones where my classroom is in a large auditorium and the students are spread out all over the place so I can't keep an eye on them. I've also had it where my 3rd graders are sassy teenagers. My room is not set up. Or my students are arriving at my door, when I suddenly realize I'm at my previous school and have to get to my current school somehow.

It is always similar to yours where I can't control the class and admin is there watching. I also have one where I don't have anything prepped.
I'm always relieved when I wake up.

I hate them. You would think that after 27 years they'd stop, but nnnnnoooooooo.

Hey bandmom, this is my 27th year too! And yes I still have those weird nightmares. Usually it has something to do with not being ready or I wake up late for the first day and can't find my car keys, etc.

In the past week I have had several nightmares. One where I somehow fell asleep while teaching my kindergarteners and woke up to find we were late to specials and dream me was so terrified and confused about it that it felt real when I woke up. Another where I was late to the first day of school. Another one where I couldn't remember where anything was in school and I forgot everything like names, location, classroom, etc.

In my nightmare last night my kids were just awful tyrants. They weren't listening, I couldn't get them to do anything, it was like a zoo, then to top it off all the admin came in to observe me during it.
