Advice for a new teacher linky

Deb Thomas has a heart of gold. Each year she asks us “vets” (veteran teachers / old fogies) to write out a tip or two for the incoming newbies.  These are mine.
I really do believe that the first year is a mixed bag of high highs and low lows, I hope that this year is filled with lots of highs for all of us! Good luck sweet newbies. You can do it!

  1. I love your advice!! Not talking about your private life or about your kiddos in your class is so important! :)

  2. Thank you for linking up Katie! Great advice about the teacher's lounge. We don't have one at my school and I am glad, but what we do have is a lunch area. Sometimes we speak of the kids in our room as if it is open territory; but it isn't. Those precious children's lives should be just as private as ours. Thank you Sara for reminding us!

  3. Katie, I love your advice. Realllly true and great to remember. I am your newest follower. I'd love you to stop by my blog if you get a chance!

  4. Aww, thanks for this advice. I've been trying to get myself into organizing and planning mode this week, and I've been getting more anxious and "what was I thinking, I can't teach! I'll ruin them!" every day.

  5. I love them all, but 3 is my favorite. When the teacher stresses, the children will too. Stay calm, and teach on!!


  6. I have enjoyed reading your articles. It is well written. It looks like you spend a
    large amount of time and effort in writing the blog. I am appreciating your effort.
