Drop any and all expectations to succeed on the first day, and in so doing, put yourself in a continuous learning mindset. I felt super confident about starting, only to experience complete culture shock on the first day. Allow your coworkers to help you, and allow the kids and teens you're working with to teach you. If you listen to then when they're angry and fighting you, they'll tell you exactly how to meet them where they are and help them. Another piece of advice just because it helped me so much is, build strong relationships with your coworkers. At the end of the day, it's so relieving to meet with them and laugh together and talk about what you're really feeling. In 10 short weeks, my coworkers became some of my best friends in the world.
