Soon to be math/science teacher here. In about 5 months I'll have finished up my degree and will be qualified to teach math, chem and bio all the way up to high school. However, I have some major anxiety. Despite having done these classes myself while in high school and having done plenty of university level units, I'm terrified as to how I'll remember everything I need to know. I glanced through a past final exam paper for chemistry and already found so many questions I'm stumped on.

I've already taught in schools as a student teacher but they were all grades 7-10 which is all really straight forward. I still have one more run as a student teacher and if I don't get a chance to teach a senior class I feel I'll be screwed having to teach one for the first time on my own when I graduate.

Any other teacher here? How do you cope with keeping on top of remembering your content? How much time do you spend retraining yourself?

Get a camera and film yourself teaching in front of a whiteboard. Just imagine a class.

You know how students study for exams? Well, teachers study to improve their classes.

Just calm down a bit. It's not about having everything in your memory, but to be able to understand and teach the concepts. Plan your classes ahead, make helpful presentations, check the answers to your exams with software, and enjoy being a teacher.

ACTUALLY, that's the most important part. Enjoy to be a teacher, otherwise, don't even bother to ruin other students' dreams.

If someone asks you a question that you've forgotten the answer to, teach them how to find the answer.

You cover your ass, and good research skills are probably going to be way more important for most kids than high school chem. anyway.

>forgotten the answer
you say so, you openly admit it, it's normal
>cover your ass
