Teacher Talk Tuesday at Blog Hoppin!

Today is Teacher Talk Tuesday at Blog Hoppin, so here goes...

My best advise for new teachers is this...
It's ok to have high expecations for yourself but don't get down on yourself if you feel like you aren't measuring up to other "veteran" teachers. Rememeber, they were newbies once too. They get it an they don't judge you, so don't judge yourself. You are doing a great job, the first year can be the toughest!

Make good friends with your custodians! :)  They can be sooooo helpful!

Don't be afraid to ask for help... Don't be afraid to make mistakes... That is how we all learn and become better teachers. :)

Trust yourself. Trust your students. Trust your families. Have fun and enjoy yourself!
