I AM. My arms are sore, my shoulders ache, I’m strolling down the streets carrying my heavy bag topped up with worries and doubts about my teaching. Racked with guilt for having them and being too ashamed to say it loud. Fortunately, Sir Google accepts writing and readily lends a helping hand: Do You Doubt Yourself? Doubting Thomas vs. Reflective Teacher and What Can We Learn From Self Doubt?

Even if a bunch of them do, still it helps.

My arrogance got splashed yesterday.
DOUBTS LEAD TO GROWTH
If so, I go for it!
I am no longer a doubting Thomas, the pavement gazer. I am in Finland,
I am Anna the Viking.
