First Day Jitters by Julie Danneberg is about a new grade school teacher named Sarah Jane Hartwell who isn't excited about teaching at her new school. However, her husband encourages her to go and enjoy it. Sarah and I are similar and different in many ways. At the beginning of the story Sarah didn't want to get out of bed due to laziness. I also felt the same as her on the first day of school because I was upset that summer came to an end and I had to put an end on all the fun summer had brought. Also, on the first day school my dad drove me to school just like how Mr.Hartwell drover her wife. Sarah and I are different because Sarah is a teacher and i'm a student.
