Maybe you just don't want people to know about
Maybe your having an extreme case of phobophobia (sp?) where you fear someone will see you have a panic attack in public?
Either which way, when I go to Target, I don't like people looking at me either, I really don't. I avoid most people's gaze when I'm walking around and panicking.
But maybe you should change your thought process to something positive? Like, maybe that guy who came to look at leak in your mom's house thinks you're pretty dang cute? And then get all confident and prance around the house.
(that's what I do when a cute guy stops by to fix something.. hahahaha it fixes the anxiety)
You just have to rework your thinking patterns, big time.
Your students look up to you! You teach them everyday!! They look to you for support and have their minds grow into healthy, happy adults. Think to yourself, rather than worry about
what they think of you, "am I going to help these kids towards a brighter future?"
They need to remember their teacher, as I have a few teachers I still remember as well. I wouldn't remember the teacher that always kept me in the dark. (so to speak)
I hope this helps Bubbly. *hugggggs*
