New Teachers: How Many Are Out There?

I can't wait for the new school year to start rolling so I can share emotions and receive feedback from all of the new teachers!!!

So lets get started! How many first year teachers are out there; where are your from, and what grade are you teaching?

I'll start! I'm from Massachusetts and it looks as though I'll be teaching the first grade!

Best wishes!

Although I am not a new teacher (this is technically my 'third year out' - long story) but it is my first year at a new school, and with the same class for an extended period of time. I am Australian, and will be teaching Grade 2 at an international school in Germany.

Hi!! I'm from Ohio and I will be teaching special education grades 2-5.

I have a resource room, but I will be mostly working in the teacher's classrooms (inclusion-type). School starts August 19th. Getting closer....I am nervous and excited, too.

Good luck to everyone!!

BTW...Oprah will have Bill and Melinda Gates on her show today talking about education. Should be interesting.

This will be my first year with my own classroom! I just got hired this morning!!! I spent a year as a day to day sub, and a half year as a LTS. I find out what grade I have next week, as there is still some shuffling around to do.

I'll be in a Charter school in Philly.

Hi SarahLou,

I am a fellow new teacher. I will be teaching half-day kindergarten in addition to a preschool class three days a week. I will be teaching at a very small PreK-8 school (about 120 students). I live in Eugene, Oregon.

When do you start?

Good Luck!

The children will start on the third of September. Teachers start the day before, however new teachers have orientation the week before. Possibly 2-3 days.

When do other new teachers start......?

I teach full-day kinder. Kids start 9/3 - ay-yi-yi The kids coming not knowing anything, so it is tiring at the beginning! The first 5 weeks are tough, although you see progress (when you look for it) each week.

Good luck, and have a terrific year!

Hi Everyone!

I am a 4th grade teacher in a Title 1 school. I live in Florida. I feel like I've gotten in over my head!!!!! I am a usually organized and prepared person, but I feel like I am going in many different directions at once.

I just moved to northern Virginia (Manassas) from Pittsburgh, PA. I will be teaching fourth grade and have been feeling almost 'bipolar' about starting. I have been super excited and buying things all summer for my classroom, but I am also absolutely terrified and don't even know where to start!
I go in on Aug. 19 for 4 days of new-teacher orientation then a week of in-service days and the kids start on Sept. 2!

I'm from Jersey and this will be my first year teaching. I will be teaching 4th grade. I still haven't seen my classroom, my training starts next Tuesday for six days, the school practically starts! I have nothing prepared, haven't seen any of the textbooks, and my classroom; who knows what it looks like! Very fustrated here!

NJ, don't worry! I'm sure it will all fall in place as time goes on. Just keep asking questions on PT. Do you have a mentor?

Hi!

I am a new teacher - 3rd grade - CT.

It was a career change for me (from lawyer to teacher).

I start this Monday but since there were asbestos issues in my room, they were working on it until this past Thurs. The first day they let me in to start setting up- this past Friday!!! Luckily, they made special arrangements for me to come in yesterday (SAT.) even though the building was technically closed. So, with the help of my husband and two kids we got things set up - to a degree! My room is not what I had hoped but is getting there!

I am looking forward to it but the butterflies are definitely in flight!

I am a first year teacher from Georgia. I am teaching third grade. Things are going well so far just overwhelming at times. Too much to do and not enough time to get everything done.
