All new K-12 teachers will benefit from and be grateful for the wisdom imparted within the pages of this mentoring book. It was written by veteran educators – who climbed into a mental time machine to remember the pitfalls and problems they faced as new teachers.
Student teachers and new classroom teachers can hit the ground running and feel more confident about being the “newbie” in the building and in front of students.
The book covers everything from what (and what not) to wear, how to deal with parents, administrators, other teachers, and rowdy students, as well as how to take charge of the classroom on day one, proper teacher-pupil relationships, and examples of ways to introduce creativity into lessons. This book is best read before the bell!
