What is so amazing about education as a profession is that you impact people who go out and impact people. Teachers will never get the recognition they deserve because their impact can be infinite. Think of it this way…if one thing in this blog inspired you to try something new or do something positive, that is because my teachers gave me the tools to share my voice. You will do the same for an endless amount of people.

Do not compare yourself to veteran teachers, other new teachers, or someone working down the hall. Although beginning teachers always look for ways to become more effective, ways to be stronger communicators, and ways to manage students and their behaviors, it is unrealistic to compare yourself to others. Strive for excellence, model the best that you see, but be yourself. Have confidence in who you are and know that the classroom is a place for you to set goals and create successes for you and your students. Welcome ideas and suggestions from teammates, but feel empowered to celebrate your individuality as a teacher, to try new things and make your classroom the place where everyone wants to be.
Stay caught up. Beginning teachers face a flood of deadlines and due dates. Staying on top of it all can be a constant battle. If someone shows up at your door looking for a signature or requesting funds for a staff party, take that moment to complete the task.

This rule works with grading assignments as well. Assign meaningful tasks to students and score them quickly. A mountain of papers is the last thing a hardworking teacher wants to see when the final bell rings. Never underestimate the power of an exit pass. At the end of a class, an exit pass allows you to quickly check for mastery. Make friends fast. Branch out. Show administrators, lead teachers, parents, assistants, and volunteers that you are someone who values their hard work and a relationship with them.
A kind word, a high five, a note, an e-mail, or a small token of appreciation can go a long way.

Fall in love. The subject or topic or unit that you like the least may be the one you struggle with the most. Fall in love with what you like the least. Make the specific subject or topic a priority. Do whatever it takes to convince yourself, and in turn, convince your students that you love the topic, the topic matters, and is relevant to daily life. Devise a bag of tricks. Throughout the year, write those ideas and thoughts on an index card, place them into a bag, and revisit the bag regularly before school, after school, or on teacher workdays.
The bag allows you to gather great ideas in one location for use as needed. Embrace the circumstances. This is tolerable in theory and detrimental in practice. Embrace circumstances rather than denying them. Know the ins and outs. Early on, and throughout the year, know what is expected of you as a beginning teacher.
Brainstorm your questions and ask them early: What is the process if a student gets sick? What are the resources I can offer to a troubled kid?
