New Kindergarten Teacher...any/all advice welcomed

Hi everyone...
I previously was a special ed case manager working with various grades for 3 years and just started a new job where I have my own integrated kindergarten classroom. This is a welcomed, but overwhelming challenge. I am finding it really tough to focus on all the good I know while learning new curriculum, new students, new co-workers, and a new building and district. Sometimes I find my mind is so crammed full with information I forget the simplest strategies to help my kiddos. I have one student who has been having major behavior issues and a few friends who are very academically low as well...along with a couple others who are extremely skilled already! Basically, I feel as though I am in over my head more often than not trying to meet all the expectations and honestly any input is welcomed!

General advice can be hard to give, but since you just started treat it like the very beginning of school. Work on routines, procedures, and community building a lot. Once you have those down it's time to start on academics, but if you don't have the expectations set and known it will be a fight all year.
