The blog of a (first year) teacher.
Best of luck! Especially my fellow first year teachers. We will have a great year full of many experiences. Can’t believe it is here!
Doing current event assignments in all classes. See other great Simpsons headlines right over here.
We could always use mentors of any subject, but we have a big need for mentors who teach grades 1-5 especially! Please contact me if you are interested in being a mentor to a student teacher or first year teacher.
I don’t. Anyone out there able to help out?
Take a look at the student teacher role call. We have a few special education folks there!
Hello! To update you all on the tumblr mentoring process:
Many great tips and things to consider for the student teachers. After student teaching last semester, this list certainly rings true! Especially the bit about gossiping about others. You will hear it from teachers and students. Don’t engage in it.
High school teachers, what’s the deal with notes in your classroom? In the past I’ve provided a notes sheet to help guide students during the lecture part of the lesson. It helps keep them on track and focused pretty well. Some people might think this is spoon feeding, though.
Do you do something similar? Do you teach your high schoolers how to take notes? Do you not care if they don’t take notes? Do they need to?
To get a mentor - message me off anon! Advice for getting a job? I’ve posted a few things on my blog to take a look at in the past. Quick and dirty: get that resume reviewed, tailor your cover letter to the schools needs, get the cover letter reviewed, apply everywhere you can, use solid examples in your interview in which you let your personality shine through. I can help review your resume if you’d like.
