Topic: Advice for New Teachers
Here is My Advice
Don't get into the habit of always buying unnecessary things. Limit your purchases to items that you will use on a consistent basis and serves a beneficial purpose.
Never go into a new school thinking that you are a know-it-all. Always be open to suggestions!! Listen when someone recommends that you try something a different way especially if they way you tried did not work. Don't take it personally and think that people are criticizing you.
No matter what you do or what happens...never, ever, ever...let them see you sweat. Mistakes will be made, but just pick yourself up and keep it movin!!
Find yourself some comfortable shoes...you will need them. Very rarely will you have time to sit down. You will be on your feet all day. But if you must where heels like I do sometimes keep a pair of flats under your desk. They will come in handy!!
Make the most of your time. It is going to be very important to use your time wisely. You must be organized and prepared at all times. Don't socialize in the teacher's lounge during your planning or after school...use that time to prepare for the next day, do your lesson plans, or analyze your data to drive your instruction.
The last piece of advice that I can give to all new teachers is to be YOURSELF. Never pretend to be someone that your are not. People will see right through that!! Be genuine and sincere in your actions and deeds and you won't go wrong.
Now it's your turn!! Go link up with Toya... and drop some science on these new teachers!!!
I'm out!!! Have a Sensational Sunday!!
