to PT & the greatest profession!

3 treasured and true pieces of advice mentor teacher gave:

1. Stay positive- have fun, enjoy the successes, and know when you have "one of those days"- it, too,
will pass.
2. Challenge yourself to learn more than your students everyday.
3. Show your students/ their families that you care.

Best of luck!!!

My first teaching job was in fourth...35 years ago. I retired in June.
I still remember how nervous I was. I was lucky enough to be teaching along with another fourth grade teacher who was so kind and helpful. I had her daughter, the son of the assistant superintendent, and a special needs child whose parent was in denial of his diagnosis, along with all the rest in my home room class. I sure learned a great deal that year! I hope you are blessed with such a great colleague as I had that first year.

I am a new teacher as well, graduated in December 2013.
This year I have been hired to teach 5th-8th grade students in Language/Language Arts/the English Language. I am working abroad in the Dominican Republic in one of the private bilingual schools here, so this is a little different than what I interned and learned during my university years.

I'm hoping to come across some really good discussions here (as I have already found) so I can start off my first experience well!

Good luck to the rest of you!

Hi everyone! This is my first year teaching, and I'm 6th grade language arts!

I joined this forum because I feel like I need some support from other teachers and would love any ideas/strategies that have worked for you as far as classroom management. I'm working at an inner city school where many students exhibit difficult behaviors.

I know that the first year is the hardest, but if anyone has any advice for me, PLEASE help me out!!

Thanks, y'all!

I hope you remember in your upcoming, fast moving, hectic year to come here for resources. There are so many good ideas and people to bounce things off of, not to mention the Vent board for those times when you are just going crazy and need to get it off your chest!

Have a great first year, and see you soon! Check the busyboard and your grade level boards for lots of great ideas!

Welcome to all the new teachers out there; first time, new grade level, second career and anyone else I may have missed. We are thrilled to have you join our happy PT family. My advice:
1) Enjoy the ride but take time for yourself.
2) Sit back and remember to enjoy the kids.

CONGRATULATIONS! You are about to walk the path that I have been walking for the last 34 years. Each year is like the first for me. I go in the classroom with a new feeling of joy. I know that if this is the path you are meant to be on you will have the same renewed joy that I feel each year as well. Again, congratulations to each of you.....

I just got an offer today to teach 2nd grade! It's my first teaching position after a 4.5 year job search! I am so excited! I'm also in shock, as well as wondering where do I begin?

This is my second year teaching. Last year I taught 3rd. This year I was all prepared to teach 3rd again, however this past weekend I was asked to move to 4th. So I have my same group of students from last year. I have been stressed out because today was our first day of school. So I had to switch gears in a hurry.

This will be my first year ever as a teacher in a classroom.
I am lead teacher in a toddler classroom (ages 12 months to 36 months) at a non-profit early childhood education center. The center is year round, so I have already begun, but the official school year here in TX begins August 25th, so I am planning to execute my re-vamped schedule/learning objectives then. I am also working as the Parent Liaison for the center. I do not have a degree in education, my degree is in Human Services, so as I said earlier, this is my first time as a teacher in a classroom! An advice for teaching toddlers will be greatly appreciated!

I have been reading on the job search forum for a little over 2 years. I finally received a job offer on August 13th. I will be a 4th grade teacher this year! It is my first year and I have been searching since I graduated May 2012. I have been on numerous interviews and applied for countless jobs. I will be teaching 4th grade math and science.

Inclusion

This is my first year as a special education inclusion teacher. No one has given me any guidance, other than they want as much inclusion in the classroom as possible, on planning, scheduling, etc. So I am really making it up as I go along. I am afraid half way through the year, or worse evaluation time, someone is going to say, "This is the way you should have done it!"

make sure you plan your lessons based on gened teachers, show how your differentiating, different level books, modified test, reduce work etc. Pull kids into groups that are struggling, not just special ed. Choose what day to work on goals. This make sure goals are covered. Be assertive, most Gen ed teachers don't give room to co-teachers. Ask where you can help.

This will be my first full year. I am a Special Education Teacher in an Inclusion room, grades K-5. My kids have a GenEd teacher, but are with me for the majority of their day. Depending on their need. Im super overwhelmed with not know what Im doing, but I figure that comes with the territory. Im making a point to ask for help as much as possible. This will be a huge learning year for sure.
