The end of summer is approaching (I know, I know…don’t throw tomatoes!) and with the end comes the start of our new school year. For many, it is just another year under our belt. But for others, it is the very first time they will step foot in a classroom of their own.
Do you remember what it was like? The challenges and struggles you had as a new teacher? The hopes and dreams? The tears?
For me, my first year was almost my last.
I was ready to hang my hat up and call it a day, until a veteran teacher came to save the day.
So let’s do that. Come on over to my blog to read a story of my first year and read my advice every new teacher needs to hear. I’ll keep it to the top 5 things based on what I went through.
Then share your stories and advice for the incoming class (of teachers). There is already a ton of advice for everyone… new and seasoned alike…
