Teacher Talk Tuesday

My advice for new teachers...

1.  Have fun every day!  No matter how stressful it all is, you've got to laugh and love what you do.  If you don't love it, do something else!  You will lose your mind if you don't!
2.  Don't ever think you've got it all down pat.  You don't.  Ever.  Keep reading professional books, going to conferences and reading these blogs.  The field of education is constantly changing and to be a great teacher, you have to keep up!
3.  You can make the parents be your supporters or your enemies.  It's best for everyone if you hold your tongue and make nice.  Be professional, respectful and friendly!
4.  Lastly, many kids today have problems at home.  Try to be understanding and be that friendly face that they need.
