4. Accept that Nobody’s Perfect
The worst thing about impostor syndrome is that it is constantly in the air, making you feel sick over the fact that you have to be perfect in every aspect of your job. No one is perfect, and no school board or administrator expects perfection. Be the best you can be. Be prepared, try to improve each year, and learn from your mistakes. We’re all a work in progress, and giving yourself permission to be less than perfect is a great step toward feeling less like a fraud and more like the competent professional you actually are.
