10 tips for the new teachers
10 Tips for the New Teachers is an incredibly useful website, that all incoming teachers should look at. There are a bunch of tips mentioned, that I never would have thought about; one being the Emergency Kit. A day in the classroom can drag out to be a long one, so it is good to be prepared for anything that the day might throw at you. A couple of things mentioned to have in the Emergency Kit was medicine, pony tails, change for vending machines, a toothbrush and toothpaste, and so much more. To take a look at a more detailed list of emergency items take a look at the website Oh! No! Kit for Teachers. Another great tip on this website is to invest in a good quality and comfortable pair of shoes. Teachers are on their feet for 7+ hours a day, so it's important that your feet won't be hurting you all day. There are even discussion boards that advise you on what kinds of shoes to purchase for teaching. It was also mentioned to keep an extra pair of shoes at school to change into. The most important tip on this website was to ask your fellow teachers or mentors to give you a walk through of your daily school procedures. This includes where to pick your class up, how to sign up for library time, what to do during lunch, the playground rules for recess, and so much more. Knowing what your daily schedule will be like is crucial since that is what you will be doing everyday for a year.
